  • A well furnished and maintained museum. Thanks to the hon'ble govt for offering us a chance to explore the museum. By the way the film screening arena should be a little bit improved.
  • Wonderful spot for those who want to know more about one of the most powerful and influenceal PM and leader of India after independence- That is Indra Gandhi.
  • You can peep into the priceless life of Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi. You can spend good 2-3 hours at this place and enjoy the house turned museum
  • Nostalgic place to recall the leaders who sacrificed their life for country. You could feel their very presence and start living with it.
  • 31 Oct 1984 PM Indira Gandhi assassinated here. In her memory his residence turned into a museum. This museum shows her simple life.

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists. For budget accommodations, consider the neighborhood of Paharganj, just west of the New Delhi railway station. Noisy and packed with peddlers of every kind, the area offers some of the least expensive rooms located relatively near major attractions. Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors. Always call or visit the website in advance to check on prices and amenities included.
