Well kept museum with Ghandi's work room and many photos tracking his life, newspaper publications and copies of letters sent to Hittler and other world 'leaders'. Free admittance but a contribution is requested.

This building was Gandhi's house for many years. It is filled with books and framed quotes and tries to show important moments from his life including little diorama models showing important times in the life of Gandhi. In my opinion, the best part was seeing his simple, stark room, it showed just how simply he lived.

We loved Mani Bhavan. Seeing Gandhi's room was a particularly special moment. Some incredibly intricate wax tableaux illustrating notable incidents in his life and wonderful original framed letters and photographs. The feeling of peace still lingers. Not to be missed.

An important site for all peace lovers, the home that Gandhi stayed in for many years when in Bombay. It resonates with his peaceful energy, beautiful silence and powerful quotes. A must see for all Mumbai travelers.
