“Very Informative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2012

Entry by donation! Should be charging an entrance fee. I knew who Ghandi was, but had no idea about his life. The model scenes were brillient, so much easier to digest than enless reading. The house had a good feel to it and you could picture him there. It was good to see the glass panelled room with some of his artifacts in. Excellent value for £. Emerged much the wiser!

“Inspirational”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2012

Gives a good overview of Gandhi's life. The entry fee is quite low. It should take 30min-1hour to visit the Museum. The museum is the former house of Mahatma and is not very big. If you take some time to learn a bit about Gandhi, it will probably be an inspiring visit.
