Mani Bhavan Gandhi Museum Tours

In the ornate terraced home where Mahatma Gandhi stayed while on trips to Mumbai from 1917 to 1934, the touching Mani Bhavan Gandhi Museum tells the story of Gandhi’s life as one of the 20th century’s most iconic figures who peacefully led India to independence from the British through his peaceful campaign of Civil Disobedience. 

The most moving part of any visit to the Mani Bhavan Gandhi Museum is seeing Gandhi’s simple room on the second floor. This is the spot where Gandhi developed his philosophy of nonviolent protest. Furnished only with a small mattress, a book, some low tables, and his iconic spinning wheel (immortalized in the center of India’s national flag), leaders including Barack Obama and Martin Luther King have visited Gandhi’s room to pay their respects to the father of the Indian nation.

Set on a leafy avenue a few streets north of Chowpatty Beach in South Mumbai, as you wander the rooms of the Mani Bhavan Gandhi Museum you’ll get to learn about Gandhi through dioramas, press clippings, documents, images, films, memorabilia, and letters he sent to a range of figures including Hitler and Roosevelt. 

You can also visit the library with its famous Mahatma Gandhi statue. Up the staircase, head to the photo gallery on the first floor to see photos from his childhood right up until his assassination in 1948.

Practical Info

On 19 Laburnum Road in South Mumbai, Mani Bhavan Museum is open from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Entrance is free, though donations are appreciated.
