  • Some rare photographs from the famous Gandhi family's archives were shared. Loved the experience. Saw more people than I expected to see. Things were well arranged. The lawns are very well kept.
  • This is the same old house where former Indian Prime Minister Mrs. Indira Gandhi used to live with her family. And this is the same place where she was assassinated. Kudos to the museum authorities - they have very well-maintained all the belongings of Mrs. Gandhi. One can see all the historical facts about her, awards she won and her belongings. It will take around an hour to see the whole museum patiently. Currently, Mrs. Gandhi's centenary (100 years of birth anniversary) is being celebrated and for this a special exhibition related to her life is shown - at the lawn. Entry is free and also parking is available next to the museum for free too.
  • houses a very good collection of memorabilia, exhibits, newspaper clippings and photos related to one of India's greatest leaders Indira Gandhi. a very well planned, designed memorial house. it also houses a very good collection of memorabilia and exhibits related to Rajiv Gandhi too. a place I'd suggest every Indian visit to appreciate the legacy of Indira and Rajiv Gandhi.
  • Very nicely maintained. People who admire the personality of Indra Gandhi, it's a treat to visit this place. There a bit of history about Rajiv Gandhi as well.
  • Special 100 year anniversary exhibit and staff were nice, but the main museum is not interactive and a bit hard to follow. Lots of artifacts so if you are an expert on Indira Gandhi you will probably find it fascinating.

Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors.
