A Nobel Laureate! His art, His work, His collection and His Life. All tucked away in this massive structure popularly called as Rabindra Bharati University Museum, which as the name suggests doubles up as a university and a Museum to the followers of the phenomena called ‘Tagore’. The structure is maintained well though there is room for improvement. My visit... More

Dodging monsoon rain, we wandered the lively local streets for a bit looking for this place, but it was worth it! The museum takes anything from an hour to two and a half to go around - depending on how much to read and stop to soak up the atmosphere. There are some great photos on display, and the Chinese...

We enjoyed our visit to the house of Rabindranath Tagore, India's greatest poet. Well worth the 50 Rp entry fee for the excellent exhibition on his life and times.

Once we got used to the chaos [and the lack of maintainance of everything! ] we enjoyed the vibe of the city , we loved our trip to the totally unspoiled Sunderbans in particular the spectacular river trip. In short I cant wait to return and maybe go up river next time and do a little more history in the... More

Out of the way, but we were taken there by the Calcutta Walks walking tour people. Worth seeing; Easier to digest the sculptures and appreciate them than those in the Indian Museum.

idk what this person below is talking about "not being well maintained." It's very well maintained for the standards. Westerners are obsessed with clean white walls. Yet seeing the age of buildings and preserving the unique feeling is important too!
