Gandhi Smriti Museum

Gujarat & Diu

Mahatma Gandhi attended university in Bhavnagar, and this faded museum, by the clock tower, has a multitude of Gandhi photographs and documents. Unfortunately, explanatory placards aren’t in English (or they simply don't exist at all) and, despite the official opening hours, the museum is closed more than it's open.
