Gandhi lived in this house for about 17 years, from 1917 to 1934. I visited this museum as part of a shore excursion from my cruise ship. We were given 20 minutes to see the entire building which is not enough.

Because I came on a shore excursion, the building was very crowded and it was difficult to see anything with this large number of people. The house itself was not very big. I found the National Gandhi Museum in New Delhi was so much better than this museum. It has a lot more space with more information on Gandhi's life and was the site where he was killed.

To be able to see the levels of the house you will need to be able to climb stairs so the museum is not accessible for people in wheelchairs or people with baby strollers.

It was an honor to be able to visit this bungalow that was Mahatma Gandhi's Bombay house from 1917-1934, now converted into a museum in his memory. Besides the plain spartan room, there are pictures of events from his life. One is able to gain a real sense of Gandhi and India's struggle for independence.

It is the beautiful historical place. Mani Bhavan beliggende på Laburnum Road nær babulnath politistation. The Mani Bhavan Gandhi Sangrahalaya is a house in South Mumbai where Mahatma Gandhi lived for 17 years between 1917 and 1934. The house has been turned into a museum and library. The latter contains amongst many books, a collection of books that once belonged to Gandhi. The upper two floors are museums space detailing bothi his life and his role in the Indian struggle for independence.

Mahatma Gandhi used to live in this house of a friend and which has now been turned into a museum and library. The library is on the ground floor while the smallish museum occupies the floors above.

There are lots of dioramas capturing significant events in Gandhi's life. They're well done and capture the stories very well. There are also a large number of photos plus copies of letters, newspaper cuttings and the like. Lots and lots to see and read.

There's also a room set up with some of Gandhi's few possessions including his spinning wheel. It's the room he used to use when he stayed here.

A gold mine for Gandhi devotees and well worth a visit for others as well.

This is the museum dedicated to Mahatma Ghandi.
It is an interesting stop for about an hour. It is in a house Ghandi lived in . There are photos and dioramas depicting his life including a letter he wrote to Hitler hoping Hitler would stop his aggression. We found it interesting.

As a student of history even just entering the place where the great man lived was something special. The museum is located in a quiet tree lined street so it is in a lovely setting. The museum has many exhibits depicting some of the important events in Gandhi's life. The walls are covered with important letters that he wrote including one to Hitler. We truely enjoyed our visit.

We made a effort to see this Museum as we had been in India for nearly two months and this was the last day of our trip.

We are so glad to have experienced a little snippet of what this great man was about, lots to see and read and you could feel his presence and appreciate the effect he had on others.

Highly recommend this great little authentic museum.

This is a very interesting museum tracing the life of Mahatma Gandhi from India, to South Africa, and back to India again. It is very well done. The dioramas are somewhat simple, but the Museum does an excellent job of condensing the high points of Gandhi’s life in a way that all ages can understand. We stayed for an hour and it was well worth the time.
