  • Very interesting. It relates the history of fight against the English colonization. To reach the Museum should take the number 75 bus.

  • In the 25 years that I have to go to India, always me has attracted visiting the Museum of Gandhi in DELHI. It is a well documented and interactive museum for those who wish to know in depth about the life of Gandhi.

  • Minimalist Museum which tells the story of the liberation of India from 1750. When Gandhiji character in history, the second part of the Museum is dedicated to many pictures of the mahatma as well as some original relics (including the dothi he wore when he did murder). To see.

  • This building, grounds, and exhibits inside are truly a must see. The series of panels as you first walk in tells much of Gandhi's history,and that of the independence and freedom fighters of India. Definitely take time to walk along these panels and read. And inside the building ,creative exhibits about Gandhi's life, with a nice effort to make his history and life accessible for people. The small library at the back of the house is really worth a visit and there are books available for purchase. must visit.
  • This place has a nice collection of books and other historical staffs related to Gandhi's. It is situated just beside the Yamuna river. The museum showcase a letter that was written by Rabindra nath Tagore to Mahatma Gandhi in 1913.
