Mahatma Gandhi Museum
is dedicated to the life and major events of Gandhiji's life. The venue of the museum is the house of Revashankar who was an active freedom fighter. Not only this, it was also the venue for the frequent visits of Mahatma Gandhi in the years between 1917 and 1934. Mani Bhavan, as this building is generally called, was the host of a number of freedom movements like Civil Disobedience Movement, Swadeshi and Satyagraha Movements.

Highlights of the Museum :


One of the main attractions of Mahatma Gandhi Museum is the Library that has a huge compilation of books related to the life of Gandhi, his ideologies, and history of Indian National Movement. The library is open to public on all days except Sundays.

There is a living room of Gandhiji which was his working place. It stores Charkha and Charpoy that were his priced possessions. An auditorium on the first floor is the sight of many visuals and films on his life. Several debates, discussions and competitions of students from schools and colleges are also held here from time to time. The recordings of his speeches create a nostalgic environment.

Besides this, there are various exhibitions that depict the life of this freedom fighter. Mini figures that are the result of efforts of Sushila Gokhale are attractions for the tourists. Mahatma Gandhi Museum is recognized as an institute that offers a Ph.D. degree to the interested students. 

Ashram prayers that are from Bhajanvali are offered in morning and evening. The prayers are written in many Languages. A bronze plaque is a place in the museum where he used to offer prayers and was arrested during struggle for independence in 1932.

Mahatma Gandhi Museum is a perfect embodiment of this man's life of simplicity and austerity.
