“Excellent museum”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

The museum is set in Indira Gandhi's former Prime Ministerial residence. The house itself is stylish and the grounds are lovely. The museum itself has an interesting selection of photographs and personal items, along with informative commentary. Several of the rooms are set up as Indira Gandhi left them. Of all the memorial museums (including Mahatma Gandhi's memorial and Nehru's memorial) this is the most well done. It's the the same vicinity as the Mahatma Gandhi Smriti (memorial) and the Lodi gardens so all these things can easily be done on the same day. Entrance is free.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

A very interesting history on this extraordinary woman and her family. There is lots to read on the way around. We went on a Saturday. Try to avoid the weekends it is very busy and many Indian nationals visit. Queuing and moving in orderly way not their strong point! Definitely worth visiting if you want to learn some of India's history.

“Reflections of Indira Gandhi”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

If one wants to know the former prime minister this is the place to be, right from her personal items to the room she stayed in, gifts she was presented, her living room, the place she was assassinated including the saree she wore when she was assassinated is displayed here. A special section on the life of Rajiv Gandhi, shedding light on the recent history of congress and life of Sonia Gandhi, the kurta which Rajiv Gandhi wore when he was bombed to death is a poignant reminder of how painful death he must have died. must see!

“Just don't go on a Sunday”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

For anybody who is interested in modern Indian history this is a landmark place to visit... It's here where India's PM Indira Gandhi lived for many years. And it was also here where she was finally assassinated. Sunday is a bit of hell to visit this place: packed with visitors which will make it difficult to really focus on anything.
