This is a 'tourist' destination be prepared for loads of bus full people and street hasslers.. if arriving in the morning before the crowds you will enjoy walking through history in this beautiful building, there is a flight of stairs to climb inside and plenty of material to read. Also a big stand up picture of Gandhi - great for photo opportunity. Book and memorobilia on sale at entry desk.

First the visit timings are 9.30 to 18.00 hours and entry fee is Rs 10. Gandhiji used to stay here so this place has pictorial representation of important stages in his life and also letters written by Gandhiji to world leaders.No guide is needed at this place everything is in english and hindi . I said must visit for foreigners because at one place they can know everything about him. photos and video shooting is allowed at this place without any extra fee.

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.

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.

Mahatma Gandhi lived here between 1917-1934. Many important things in his life happened while he was here, one of them being his historic fast in 1921. His cherished ideals of truth and non-violence were what he taught the nation while he was here.

The first floor of the house is comprised of the library which has more than 50,000 books by and on Gandhi and Gandhian thought and also has an auditorium which shows films and recordings of his speeches at certain times.

The second floor has two main sections. The first is the living quarters of Gandhi, and the second is the picture gallery and mini figure tableaux depicting his life.

The museum is small and can be seen in about an hour. Interesting and informative.

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.
