We came here with our small tour group. Nice to see the house were he lived for a time. There are lots of pictures and letters on the walls. There was even a letter to Hitler! Diorama boxes depicting various scenes in Gandhis life. There is a library here but we couldn't go in.

This museum touches quite close to Ghandi's life. The library is for academic research, but the art, photos, dioramas, and miscellaneous pieces should interest most people. Not for kids.

Visited this beautiful and small museum located in a quiet place in Mumbai. The three story building holds photos depicting Gandhi's life and works, letters written by him to Tolstoy, Einstein, Roosevelt, and Hitler among others. The library has a huge collection of books including books used by Gandhijee himself.

Considering the great significance of Gandhi, this museum is remarkably understated. It is situated in a quiet side street and our taxi driver had some trouble finding it. However, having got there it proved worth the effort. The nice thing is that it is still possible to imagine Gandhi living there. On the downside, the museum seems to presume quite... More

Worth a visit to understand a bit more about the great man and where he had lived for a while. A room holding boxes depicting events in his life was interesting

We visited this place as part of a tour but it would be just as easy to visit independently. Wasnt too challenging (which is quite nice if you are on holiday) but still very informative about the life of Ghandi and his political beliefs. Several floors of exhibition and you are able to look at the spaces that he inhabited... More

Mani Bhavan is a place where you walk through the history of India and understand the struggles our father of the nation Gandhiji had gone through, how he lived and the sequence of silent activities Gandhiji did to get us the freedom. A visual treat which will take you back in history. A must place for family, children and I... More

I asked taxi driver to take me for some sight seeing and he took me here. I think I have seen lot of museums but unlike all this is little different with stairs and rooms with straits from Gandhi ji life. It is a place with peaceful feeling.
