  • This is a very mundane museum, but if you read Gandhi's sort-of-autobiography, My Experiments with Truth, you can't help but fall in love with what he was about, and then seeing his quotes and his roo...  more »

  • Nice place to visit for people interested in history. History related to life of Mahatma Gandhi, Indian Independence and more. The museum is well kept and a different feel from the other attractions in Mumbai. A calm place from the busy city. Guided tours also available.
  • Depictions of scenes from Ghandi's life, close inspiration for the movie named after the great man. Definitely worth 20mins if you are in the area.
  • On the ground floor, there is a paper conservation centre where important documents/books are preserved. Every floor (especially the first one) has many images of Gandhi with captions detailing his life and the non voilent protests he undertook. On the second floor, a special section is dedicated to dioramas- small boxes with figures portraying scenes from Gandhi's life from his childhood to death. Another section was an entire room which had glass walls through which spinning wheels or charkhas could be seen. It was the place where Gandhi used the work and so to keep everything intact, entry was prohibited inside. Compared to Gandhi Smriti in Delhi, Mani Bhawan is a small museum. Hence, it took very less time to explore (approx 40 mins.). It has a beautiful interior and the environment was soothing. There were enough seats and fans on every floor to ensure the comfortability of visitors. This place is worth visiting if you are a Mumbaikar or have come here as a tourist.
  • It is also a historical place . Once Gandhiji lived in this simple two storied building and it is the focal point of Gandhiji's political activities. At present it is a museum . It is a fine tourist spot.
  • Very well kept memoirs of Gandhi’s stay in Mumbai and anecdotes of India’s fight for independence. If you are looking to go to a quiet place to understand bits about India’s freedom struggle with beautiful sculptures doing the story telling effortlessly, this surely can be a place you can turn towards. It’s rustic feel makes you travel back in time.
