Gandhi museum in Madurai's highlight is a replica of gandhiji hut. Additionally it chronicles India's journey of independence with many rare photos and artifacts A big park with many big trees right in the middle of Madurai is yet another attraction

A cute approach with some gems in a not "fancy" place. A lot of locals also visiting. Learned a few new things about India's history

Lots of stuff to read, with pictures, but if you can cope with it, it was very interesting. Artefacts not as important as information on India's journey to independence.

The Ghandi museum was a interesting 'must see' museum. So much history, not all Ghandi! If you are not familiar 18th India's struggle for freedom, and even if you are....it is worth sweating your way through.

It's a new addition in Madurai relatively but quite the attraction. Great insights, well put artifacts and stories about the Mahatma. Lots of photos and an brief into the Indian freedom struggle. Worth a stop if in Madurai.

OK title said it did have one or two unique items and some good history points. The disappointment was that the main Gandhi building was closed due to holiday. Still worth the visit
