“Very moving”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

At a time when there is so much of pain and suffering, visiting this museum re-kindles the humanity that exists in you. Very tastefully decorated and a real learning experience. A must see.

“interesting visit”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

This museum is set in a domestic street and is over several floors. Many visual displays with photographs and models along with quotes, explain Ghandi's life and philosophy. One room is set out in primitive style, as Ghandi lived, just like the house he lived in in Delhi.
No entrance fee as such, but you will feel that you want to contribute or buy a book at the end of your visit. An hour or two spent here is time well spent.
