The museum offers details about the history of the Tagore family including its involvement with the Bengal Renaissance and the Brahmo Samaj.

Mani Bhavan

Mani Bhavan is a simple old-style, two storied building on Laburnum Road, Mumbai. Whenever Gandhiji was in Mumbai between 1917 to 1934, he stayed here.It is now converted into a museum and research centre.

Mani Bhavan, a modest two-storied building on the Laburnum Road in the comparatively quiet locality called Gamdevi, served as Gandhiji's Bombay head-quarters for about seventeen long and eventful years (1917-1934).The room on the second floor which used to be the living room and working place of Gandhiji has been preserved as far as possible in its original setting.
