On a shady street you find the Gandhi Museum where he spent his time living when in Mumbai. The museum gives a very thorough story of his life and death. It includes a series of dioramas that highlight important events in his life.

It is a very knowledgable place, gives a good glimpse into the history of Gandhiji. It's a small place, but nice.

Museum dedicated to Ghandi. This site was his house for many year. A lot of personal belongings and photos show the story of his life. Exhibits are very informative. No fee but donations are appreciated. Not to be missed.

Always filled with school children or foreign tourists, this is a nice and understated homage to a great man tucked away in a quiet part of South Bombay, close to Gamdevi police station. Shows how Gandhi lived his life as a simple man.

Gandhi is considered one of the best people in the history of mankind. Visiting his home in Mumbai may inspire a few to be better, even if it means a seed is planted what humanity really is.
