About the Museum

Mani Bhavan is a memorial to Gandhi located in Mumbai. It is the home where he often stayed over a period of seventeen years (1917-34) when he was fighting for freedom for India. The home was owned by Shri Revashankar Jagjeevan Jhaveri who hosted him during that time, and was an ardent follower of Gandhi’s work. The house was an epicenter for the fight for Indian freedom, and the first phase of the non-violent freedom struggle began in this home. It was where he met with his colleagues to discuss their movement, and now is a symbol of freedom and peace.

Today, it is open to the public as a memorial. The ground floor houses museum offices and library, and the second floor shows where Gandhi lived and worked and presents an exhibition about his life. Them home also continues its tradition of being a space for joining together as it hosts important meetings of social workers, concerned citizens, Sarvodaya workers, students and teachers.
