Gandhi Museum, Jaipur is housed in the campus of Rajasthan Khadi Gram Udyog Sansthan Sang. In the year 1980, Gandhi Bhawan was constructed & inaugurated in the campus to create and dedicate a space to Mahatma Gandhi, his life & his movements associated with India’s independence. With the efforts of Chandra Innovation Foundation & Rajasthan Khadi Gram Udyog Sansthan Sang, Gandhi Museum, Jaipur was opened in Gandhi Bhawan in 2019 which marks the 150th birth anniversary year of Gandhi. The museum displays Gandhi’s journey from his birth from showcasing all the major moments in his personal & professional life.
The foyer of the Museum is named the Hall of Peace and Harmony and is dedicated to 8 world leaders who follow Gandhi’s teachings & philosophy. The museum space is divided into different galleries depicting different periods of Gandhi life. The first gallery showcases the history of The Revolution of 1857 which is considered as the onset of British Raj in India.
The following two galleries are focused on Gandhi’s birth in 1869, his education, marriage, childhood days and his life in England from 1889 - 1891. The next gallery is dedicated to his life as a lawyer in South Africa with glimpses of his family and public life. His arrival in India and life and activities at Sabarmati can be seen at the next gallery along with some of the major national activities of Gandhi like the Champaran movement, Dandi Satyagraha and the Congress meeting at Belgaum. The last gallery showcases India’s independence in 1947 & Gandhi’s last few days spent at Birla House before his assassination.
