Mani Bhavan, Mumbai

19 Laburnum Road
Tel: 91 22 2380 5864's insider take:

This quaint bungalow on leafy Laburnum Road was Mahatma Gandhi's Mumbai home. Now a museum dedicated to his memory, its musty shelves are filled with books on his philosophy and political strategies. Don't miss Gandhi's chilly letter to Hitler, the note of praise from Einstein, or the black-and-white photographs of his meeting with the Queen at Buckingham Palace. The highlight of the museum is Gandhi's airy room, complete with his mattress, slippers, and yarn spinning wheel. The museum is a smaller version of the National Gandhi Museum in Delhi.

Open daily 9:30 am to 6 pm.
