Mahatma Gandhi Museum, Pune

Aga Khan Palace, Pune

Inaugurated in October 2019


August, 1942! The fervour for freedom was at its peak; anger was brewing against a brute Empire and it was then that, Gandhiji called out, “we shall either free India or die in the attempt; we shall not live to see the perpetuation of our slavery”. In response, the British arrested Gandhiji along with a few of his associates and detained him for 21 months at the Aga Khan Palace. While outside these walls the country was left leaderless, the movement for freedom from slavery was guided through the spirit and principles advocated by Gandhiji. This place became the centre point of the ‘Quit India’ Movement. It was here that Mahadev Desai & Kasturba breathed their last.


This memorial museum is dedicated to Gandhiji and showcases in detail the entire 21 months that Gandhiji was detained here. The 12 galleries spread over 3 floors will transport the visitor to those tough times that our beloved father of the nation spent behind bars and yet guided the freedom movement.
