I want to know if we can open Access files .mdb without having MS access installed on a machine.

Any 3rd party free app which is available which can provide full features as access.

Actually I have a small database and forms which I would like to share with my team.

You can download Access Runtime (Free)  to run compiled copies of your database.

However if you need these users to have access for features that would allow them to change the design, they would need the full product.

See this article for details:

It's called the Access runtime system which you can download for the latest version of Access (only) from MS.
