A very interesting museum which tells the story of Mahatma Gandhi and is the place where he was assassinated on 30 January, 1948. Also known as "Gandhi Smriti" (Gandhi Rememberence). You can see the rooms he inhabited and the garden where he was shot; his last journey marked by concrete footprints.
There is no charge to enter and photos can be taken, but video is not allowed.

Address: Tees January Marg, near India Gate.
