  • There are very few museums on MK Gandhi. This is one of those few. Apart from that the history of our great is depicted in a beautiful way. Should spend 2 hrs minimum. Many more things to appreciate and temember and to be proud about our country. I went a bit patriotic

  • Museum hosts a vast collection of items in memory of Mahatma Gandhi. Items include letters, books, household items used and blood stained cloth of Gandhi which was worn by him before demise. A collection of pictorial displays are available which gives a brief history about fall of Indian empire, rise of British and finally the Independence. The entire place is neatly maintained and it would be better if the ground floor of the museum can be open for visitors.

  • Had a great time exploring the Gandhi's life story and it also have a Government's Tamil Museum (Costly for Foreigners but worth spending) inside. Pros: 1.Many things about Gandhi is available, needs a whole day to explore. 2.Mobiles and Cameras are allowed but costs Rs.50. 3.Silent surrounding and good ventilation available. 4.Has things weared by Gandhi especially the blood stained cloth of Gandhi which he was wearing at his death. 5.It has a stationary store containing Gandhi's books and other good stuffs. 6.Good maintenance. Cons: 1.Tickets and stuffs are costly. 2.Felt quite boring and sleepy.

  • One of the must visit places in madurai. One can come to know about entire freedom struggle history of India and also about Mahatma Gandhi by visiting this place. The dress which he was wearing when he was shot is kept here which is a major attraction.

  • A very good experience. The all history experienced again after schooling. Gandhi's Dress, spectacles, etc etc..
