This museum used to be Ghandi's house for 17 years. It is now full of personal belongings, photos and a marvelous set of dioramas that depict the story of his life. It is very well worth a visit. There is no fee, although they appreciate a small donation.

If you've any interest in history, especially that of India, this place must not be missed. So much information about the great man; photos, a video, models and more. We spent a fascinating couple of hours here and found the experience extremely moving, inspirational and, whilst not Hindu ourselves, very spiritual too. There's a small shop, also, with various materials... More

This museum is simple but moving; just like the man. It really gives you a feel from him as a man & leader. It is a small museum, it only takes 30 -45 minutes to see it; so make certain you don't miss it during our city tour.

Mani Bhavan museum, once the residence of the "Father of the Nation" Mahatma Ghandi who lived in Mumbai from1917 to1934.

Dolls placed in glass boxes are used to illustrate various events in Gandhi's life. This was extremely... More

We visited this Museum - it is free - you leave a donation in the box as you leave. It show cases Gandhi's life in a very informative way - it tells you more about the actual man and his family and is well worth a visit.

Not quite as nice or as thorough as some of the Gandhi sites/stuff we saw in Delhi but this had a wow factor to it as his house. Unfortunately, the library was closed. that day. The museum is not that big but we really enjoyed going. We did thoroughly look at the exhibits. The street that the museum is on... More

Small but well thought out exhibition of correspondence, pictures and other information regarding Gandhi, structured so as to make the idea of what he stood for tangible even for primary school students. It's organized in the house where he used to stay in while in Mumbai with his room preserved intact.
