This private house served as Gandhi's residence for some ten years or more and has been turned into a musuem of his life. It is a thoughtful and respectful. The neighborhood makes for a respite from the constant noise of the Mumbai streets,

The Mani Bhavan is worth a visit and very close in a taxi to marine drive and Coloba. It has lots of photographs of Gandhi and his family and information throughout his life. Interesting place to visit for an hour as part of a tour of Mumbai or if you have a particular interest in the history of india.

Located in a quiet residential street, Gandhiji lived here from 1917 to 1934. His room with spinning wheels, his book and bed are preserved. Several photographs and letters he wrote to Hitler and President Roosevelt are preserved.

Such an important place to visit for Indians and Non-Indians. See how Gandhiji lived and understand his values by visiting this simple yet powerful museum. He lived in Mani Bhavan when in Bombay and it was the centre of much activity during the freedom movement.

this a house that Ghandi stayed at occasionally up until 1934. It's not his home. Ghandi wasn't from Bombay nor was Bombay the seat of government or the main location of his activities. The house contains interesting letters to Roosevelt and Hitler, prior to WW II and some of Ghandi's personal effects, along with numerous interesting photos. I didn't find... More

This nice museum, which merely asks for a donation, is modest and low key. However it contains many photos and other information about Gandhi and his life. You can see the rooms where he slept and worked too. It's a very pleasant and peaceful experience to visit the house.

Visited this museum as part of a City tour from our Cruise Ship. Ghandi lived here during the 20s & 30s and there are numerous artifacts and pictures echoing his life.A fascinating place and well worth a visit. Left here feeling that I knew more about the man than I did when I entered.
