Gandhi Memorial, Kanyakumari Reviews

  • Very one-sided museum. Its major theme is that Indians were down-trodden by the British ( Indians definitely were), but gives no credit to the advances introduced during British rule, mentioning them as if introduced to the sub-continent solely by Indians. It makes little mention of the active acquiescence of the Indian rulers to further their own positions. There is no mention of Hindu attacks on other faiths during Partition although other acts of 'terrorism' are. Apart from this the Gandhi section is small, but well laid out

  • Starts with Indians struggle and battle for freedom. It has collections of M.K. Gandhi's daily utensils, his written letters to other personalities and depicts positive Gandhian lifestyle. It takes around 3 to 4 hours to completely go through the museum but, during my visit I experienced people just glancing through the written manuscripts and printed billboards line photographs which resulted them in finishing the complete Museum visit in half an hour.

  • The history of how India got her independence has been told beautifully and in such an engaging way. Never been so gripped by narrative writing in a museum before! And it has all been hand painted! Gandhi's last worn garment is present here too, and the building itself is too grand for words. You must must see this and walk around it.

  • Amazing place describing Indian freedom fight and life of Mahatma.. The dhothi Gandhi wore while he was shot is displayed here.. Good experience for people who would like to know abouth the history of Indian freedom fight.. Peace and calm atmosphere

  • Very peaceful place with important historical facts. It beautifully narrates the Indian struggle for Independence and also has articles used by Gandhi . It would take minimum half and hour to go around depending your interest in history. It also has a center for Gandhian Study and a beautiful library
