    I'm not into museums but loved this one, a very calm aura about it. Definitely a very anonymous building that is very nicely laid out over several floors. Letters He had written to Hitler on show. Cam...  more »

    Modest Museum with photographs about the life of Gandhi. Also there is a room with models that explain graphically the key moments of Gandhi, their actions, their demands and their murder. The most interesting is to see the place where he lived for a few years and your room. I would devote less time than other places.

    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.

    A very emotional trip tracing the life of Mahatma Gandhi. The place is well maintained and preserves the quaint aspect. The mini figures museum is a delight. Heartily recommend a visit.

    Place is amazingly maintained and represented well. Very quite and nice place to know about the struggle of freedom from the very original place and feelings. Very good place for people looking for modern history and interested in the father of the nation.

    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.

Where to stay in Mumbai (Bombay)

In a cramped city like Mumbai, finding a budget hotel can present a serious challenge. Many business travelers and tourists choose to stay in South Mumbai, the oldest and richest neighborhood in the city. Accommodations here put you close to most top museums, restaurants, bars, art galleries, and shops. Proximity to major attractions comes at a premium price, though--not surprising for one of the most expensive cities in Asia. If you plan to visit on a tight budget, look for options near railway stations, but prepare for low-grade rooms and few or no amenities.
