  • The only peaceful place in the whole of Madurai as not many people visit the museum. It was a refreshing change after the hustle and bustle of the temples. The content of the museum is mainly in written form and younger ones will quickly loose interest. We specifically went looking for couple of artifacts which we had read about earlier and couldn't go through the entire content of the museum due to our restless 7 year old. Museum could use some better upkeep and upgradation in terms of lighting, display cases etc.

  • Amazing museum. Strange thing is there is no entry ticket for Indian or not even for foreigners! Still it is very well maintained, information posted is worth reading. You need at least 2-4 hours to read or see it perfectly....

  • Excellent and informative commentary, photographic and textual, upon Gandhi's life. Perspective good to share with Indians and non Indians alike. Allow plenty of time, at least a couple of hours, maybe more, to achieve full impact. Outline text of display captions usefully available from museum bookshop, worth buying a copy before you go in to exhibition itself.

  • Unique place for which the rarest piece of the clothing worn by the Greatest leader of the world, represented India for the unique movement called SATHYAGRAHA is placed. A well deserving place to visit by everyone in the world... especially the Indians.

  • 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
