Discovery of Mahatma in the true spirit and hence experiencing his presence by visiting the historical place having many belongings and books and the environment itself. As a museum it was properly maintained and of course it is a must visit of every Indian.

A New Perspective on Gandhi
Jan. 2020 • Couples
It was an honor to be able to visit this bungalow that was Mahatma Gandhi's Bombay house from 1917-1934, now converted into a museum in his memory. Besides the plain spartan room, there are pictures of events from his life. One is able to gain a real sense of Gandhi and India's struggle for independence.

Engaging and impactful

I visited the museum on the Mumbai Like a Local Tour with Mumbai Magic. It was impactful to see the room where Gandhi stayed, and the extensive dioramas were an excellent way to to learn or relearn the history of his life. The facility is not large, and is definitely worth a visit either during or outside of a Mumbai tour.

The museum is an old two-storied building where Mahatma Gandhi stayed when visiting the city during a period from 1917 to 1934. It was from here where he initiated many of his philosophies of nonviolence, and launched his movements. It was interesting to see the room that Gandhi occupied and his trademark spinning wheels as well as the Terrace where he was arrested on January 4, 1932. I enjoyed the Picture Gallery which gives glimpses of Gandhi in Mani Bhavan and important events in his life.

It is the beautiful historical place. Mani Bhavan beliggende på Laburnum Road nær babulnath politistation. The Mani Bhavan Gandhi Sangrahalaya is a house in South Mumbai where Mahatma Gandhi lived for 17 years between 1917 and 1934. The house has been turned into a museum and library. The latter contains amongst many books, a collection of books that once belonged to Gandhi. The upper two floors are museums space detailing bothi his life and his role in the Indian struggle for independence.

Has to be seen.
Mar. 2020
We saw The Mani Bhavan on a whistle stop tour of the City with Linda Tours ( brilliant).
We called in here briefly but got a wonderful sense of the place and learnt a lot in a short space of time. Seeing the room Gandhi lived in for 8 years is akin to seeing the cell occupied by Nelso Mandela on Robben Island.
There is a fascinating exhibition on the top floor and some very interesting exhibits that make you think and want to learn more. An example would be the letter to Hitler that Gandhi wrote.
There is a WC in the building and it costs 10 rupees to go in.

Gandhi’s house is now a museum
Mar. 2020
Mahatma Gandhi lived here between 1917-1934. Many important things in his life happened while he was here, one of them being his historic fast in 1921. His cherished ideals of truth and non-violence were what he taught the nation while he was here.

The first floor of the house is comprised of the library which has more than 50,000 books by and on Gandhi and Gandhian thought and also has an auditorium which shows films and recordings of his speeches at certain times.

The second floor has two main sections. The first is the living quarters of Gandhi, and the second is the picture gallery and mini figure tableaux depicting his life.

The museum is small and can be seen in about an hour. Interesting and informative.

A must see when in Mumbai
Mar. 2020
As a student of history even just entering the place where the great man lived was something special. The museum is located in a quiet tree lined street so it is in a lovely setting. The museum has many exhibits depicting some of the important events in Gandhi's life. The walls are covered with important letters that he wrote including one to Hitler. We truely enjoyed our visit.

For Gandhi fans
Mar. 2020 • Couples
Mahatma Gandhi used to live in this house of a friend and which has now been turned into a museum and library. The library is on the ground floor while the smallish museum occupies the floors above.

There are lots of dioramas capturing significant events in Gandhi's life. They're well done and capture the stories very well. There are also a large number of photos plus copies of letters, newspaper cuttings and the like. Lots and lots to see and read.

There's also a room set up with some of Gandhi's few possessions including his spinning wheel. It's the room he used to use when he stayed here.

A gold mine for Gandhi devotees and well worth a visit for others as well.
