National Gandhi Museum is in Delhi, just opposite Raj Ghat.
It is also known as Gandhi Memorial Museum, is a must-see for all history buffs and fans of the man, the myth, the legend himself – Mahatma Gandhi.
First off, the best part about this museum is that it’s free to enter! And, let me tell you, there’s no shortage of staff around to guide you through the exhibits.
The museum itself is quite inspirational and has some amazing exhibits, including interactive ones.
But, if you like your own pace, get a QR code for an audio guide and that would have been the cherry on top.
Now, let’s talk about the man of the hour – Mahatma Gandhi. This museum houses a ton of personal items, newspapers, and books related to the great leader and gives you a glimpse into his life and principles.
Fun fact: the museum first opened its doors in Mumbai, shortly after Gandhi’s assassination in 1948. Since then, it’s moved around a few times before finally settling in at Raj Ghat, New Delhi in 1961. And, let me tell you, when you follow the final footsteps Mahatma Gandhi took on his last journey, it’s a very moving experience.
The atmosphere is very respectful and really touching one. One could spend all day there, but unfortunately, they kick you out at some point.
Overall, a must-see for anyone visiting New Delhi and a great way to pay respects to one of India’s most iconic figures.
