  • Small but well thought out exhibition of correspondence, pictures and other information regarding Mahatma Gandhi, telling the story of his entire life. There are several small rooms to go through, the one I particularly found very interesting is where several realistic displays showing many significant moments of his life. Well worth the time spent. A must visit place for every Mumbaikar.
  • I would recommend everyone to go at least once. There is no entree fee too. Good for kids too, since u can teach them what Mr. Gandhi the Father of our nation did for our country.
  • We didn't plan to come here, we were so happy we found it. It is the place where Gandhi used to stay when visiting Mumbay. It explains very well Gandhi's life at all stages with plenty of pics. There are aslo a library and a well preserved room where Gandhi's used to stay. Free entrance. You can give a donation at the end.
  • A great place to know about Gandhiji's. They use recycled paper for in house books. Altogether a great experience
  • This tiny but multi-storied house used to belong to Gandhi's friend. Gandhi stayed here from time to time and now they turned it into a Gandhi museum. It is small, quaint, but interesting. Don't take a guide with you, because there are lots of things to read and see, and you will want to take your time. It's not one of those museums where a guide is helpful. The place is small and cramped, not for the claustrophobic, and it gets really hot during the day with no A/C. Make sure to visit early in the morning when its cooler. There are several exhibits of letters he wrote or had written to him, his life in miniature, and many historical photos. It won't blow you away, but it is an interesting way to spend a few hours. Best to at least know the story of Gandhi before visiting, so brush up before you come here, you'll get more out of it. The signs are kind of written like "of course you know everything about Gandhi already, but here are some exhibits commemorating his life", so if you don't know you're missing some of the interest.
