  • 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.
  • Wonderful experience. Mahatma Gandhi's personal room is well preserved. His library as well as his photographs (some of which are rare) are also in excellent condition. His letters written to American President, Hitler and Leo Tolstoy are also kept there. Overall a great experience. I felt like talking to Mahatma Gandhi inside that house. A place worth visiting again.
  • Must see landmark while visiting Mumbai. Plan to spend an 3/4 hour learning about Ghandi and soaking in the history.
  • Going back to history is just amazing. Mani Bhavan has preserved Gandhi's legacy very nicely..must for all Indians to visit
  • All about Gandhiji is present in the museum.All of the books he collected are present in the library. His life events have been shown pictorically and by making 3d structures which are really beautiful. Very silent and well maintained place.
