Peace and tranquilty overcomes you as you enter the home of the Great Mahatma. Here you can take in all that you want to know and learn about this great Father of our Nation. The Kraal (hut) is the section which Mahatma lived a simple life. It is filled with treasures of books, artifacts, maps of his journies etc. I have taken much learning away from here. The vegetable garden flourishes with lettuce, peppers , spinach etc. The much newer section built is the guest house but it does not intrude on the space of the kraal. Just looking into the rooms , it is has very basic and simple decor, much the same way the Great Mahatma lived his life. The small garden is peaceful and serene. Mohammed received us with much warmth and kindness. It was interesting to note that the Museum is now owned by the French.

Very carefully and caringly maintained place. Mohammed was very welcoming, and gave us good information. I learnt new things about M.K.Gandhi and his life in South Africa. The house itself is located on a calm street, and has a very peaceful feel to it. Must go if you find yourself in Jo'burg.

Interesting and exciting museum showing where Gandhi stayed when in Johannesburg. If travelers wish, they can stay over but need to make arrangements.

This home was one of the many that Mahatma Gandhi stayed in during his sojourn in Johannesburg. The venue is well looked after with new buildings constructed around the original thatched home. A brief history is available. Apparently meals are not served unless on special request and if one wishes, one could stay there as a B+B. It was a brief visit but we were glad to have popped in. There is not much parking but in a secure area.

The manager gave us a tour, very passionate about the restoration project and the history. The property is very peaceful and reflects the principles of Gandhi's life.
There are about 6 rooms, but you need not stay to visit the property.
