GANDHI SMRITI / BIRLA HOUSE

Gandhi Smriti formerly known as Birla House or Birla Bhavan, is a museum dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi, situated on Tees January Road, in New Delhi, India. It is the location where Mahatma Gandhi spent the last 144 days of his life and was assassinated on January 30, 1948 and now houses the Eternal Gandhi Multimedia Museum established in 1995. (Check out the website! Well done and informative!)

Gandhi Smriti means Gandhi Remembrance and it truly is a place of remembrance.

(I'm linking you in case you want to read about my visit to the Gandhi Museum and memorial.)





I love this quote :



The inside of the house has been turned into an AMAZING (let me repeat, AMAZING) multi-media museum.  



Gandhi Smriti staff are available and on hand to offer assistance and guided tours.  Most, if not all, of the exhibits are hands-on and interactive.




Albeit a bit - um - eerie, this was definitely the most popular of the exhibits we saw the morning we went.


Speak no evil, hear no evil, see no evil.






Kaleidoscope exhibit ... showing Gandhi's life and work through the eyes of children.


Exhibit showing the steps Gandhi took the morning of his assassination. 




The Martyr's Column now marks the place where Gandhi, the "Father of the Nation" was assassinated.



If you have not already been, I would highly encourage you to make the visit.  The museum is VERY child-friendly and admission is free.

Located at 5 - Tees January Marg, New Delhi-110011.  Open from 10:00 am to 05:00 pm (all days except Mondays and the second Saturday of every month).
