Wander through the historic palace, and discover the blood-stained clothes worn by Gandhi when he was assassinated in 1948. You’ll also find many letters of interest on display, as well as collections relating to India's fight for freedom, Gandhi's life story, and the nation's political history.

We should be actually proud to have this museum in our city..It is a pity that the museum has not changed in so many years. It is looking just the same way since my school days that is in 70s. So many things could have been done to make it a great one .Hope things would turn around and it will be given a facelift...
