Very interesting history of Ghandi and the fight for Independence. The language used on the display boards makes for a change to the usual impartial and emotionless information. Hard not to shed a tear at the end.

I was amazed and very happy with the informative history of India that is on display at the Gandhi museum @Madurai. I learned a lot and although a hot day and hot inside it was well worth the time. The displays relating directly to Gandhi were also very informative and very poignant. I would recommend this for visitors to Madurai.

A nice and well maintained museum on Indian freedom struggle, with some unique artefacts. Could get very crowded on weekends though.

The Gandhi Museum is just about worth a visit .... that's all. The museum opens at 10 am in the morning, and you can complete the visit in about an hour. The museum has a pictorial display of our Freedom Struggle - thats about it. Considering there's not a whole lot else to see in Madurai, its worth a look... More

Excellent museum, clear and accurate history documented on 30 easy-to-read wall mounted boards. A great history lesson for young and old. If you have an hour to spare then this place is a must.
