This museum is actually a palace built by nayak dynasty/Rani mangammal during 17th century....a sad truth is that, this history forgotten in the name of Gandhi memorial...this museum should be relocated and this palace should regain its name....this view, is nothing related to mahathma Gandhi..

I'm always getting dragged around museums by my husband when I should rather be out in the bazaars. It was with a heavy heart I offered to give up a morning here. What an amazing surprise - this place is carefully organised to clearly inform and it was with real interest that I learned much more about a subject that... More

This place always takes us to Medieval India... A good memorial for Mahatma. A calm and peaceful place. Everyone should visit it turns all the historical pages of India...

The entry is free but you need to pay extra if you want to click some pictures. A very detailed description of our freedom struggle with some handwritten letters from Gandhi ji. The dress he wore when he was assassinated is also preserved here in the same form with blood stains on it. Good 2-3 hours if you are history... More

This museum has a great collection of artifacts which very well portray the life of Mahatma Gandhi. There are paintings, photographs and posters which give us a detailed understanding of the various incidents in the life of Mahatma Gandhi and India's freedom struggle. Items used by Gandhiji like clothes, utensils etc. are also well kept in the museum.

Thank None I
