  • So nice to be here... Understanding Indira Gandhi's life is so easy here. Three are lots of paper cuttings which we could understand what happened in which year and such things. There is also the place where she had her last few steps when shot. The had reserved that too. And also some part shares in memory of Rajiv Gandhi. It's so nice to be there
  • The place is a historic place where the then prime minister of India, Indira Gandhi lived before the assassination. The place is very neat and well maintained. I suggest every history learners a must visit as everything that belongs to the prime minister in terms of childhood pictures, slippers, computer's used, certificates, clothing and much more are on display. You will never regret to pay a visit to this historic place.
  • This place is a must visit for a tourist when traveling to Delhi. This museum in itself is the place where Indira Gandhi herself used to live. And as an Indian myself I felt proud of learning more about the Iron Lady of India. It contains archives and details from the last 100 years. From the photos that I uploaded one can see clearly that all these photos and archives are preserved very much the same as it used to. Jai hind !!
  • Indira's memory come alive with her belongings and collection. This was her residence as the Prime Minister adjacent to her office. All collections systematically displayed and maintained well. Nice place to come with family to see this museum which has seen many decisive years in the making of India in Indira's tenure.
  • This was the place where you can see Indira Gandhi through your eyes..... The history of the 'Legend Lady' are expressed in such a was that I was astonished by it. It not only has Indira Gandhi's life history but also has Rajeev Gandhi's beautiful memory.... The place has the beautiful fragrance and the power of keeping one delighted.....
