National Gandhi Museum, New Delhi

4.4
Get to know the life and teachings of Mahatma Gandhi at National Gandhi Museum. The collections began shortly after his assassination in 1948, and after several relocations, the museum was finally settled in its present location in 1961. Be sure to check out the library, a huge showcase of works from Gandhi and other authors adding up to over 35,000 documents and books. You do not need to be an art lover to enjoy the gallery, which features paintings and other items of Gandhi's. Keep an eye out for his walking stick, shawl, and dhoti worn when he was assassinated. You can also inspect Gandhi's ivory toothpick, and even one of the bullets used to kill the famous leader.

  • Very informative and well kept museum. It is a fitting tribute to a very inspirational man. A reminder of who he was and what he achieved in his lifetime. Well worth the visit.  more »

  • A nice place to visit. Here you will find things related to Gandhi's life which you cannot find anywhere.
  • The museum consists mostly of (a lot of) photographs of the different stages of Gandhi's life and of his struggles and accomplishments, but fails to provide an overall picture of his life and philosophy. People that are more knowledgeable of him and his theory might think otherwise, but for Gandhi-laymen, this museum did not add a lot of value or insights. Location, pricing, facilities are all OK, just don't go there expecting to learn what Gandhi and his theories were all about.
  • A gallery full of photographs of Mahatma Gandhi that covers his life from birth to his assassination in 1948 is showcased. A must visit to know the story in pictorial form of this great human being who made a tremendous contribution to world peace.
