It's a great place to visit. The Landmark is a must visit, once in Kolkata. The lush lawns surrounding the memorial building are a great place to walk around. The Memorial has a lot to offer to look at British Architecture and expanse in such buildings.

We visited this place during November which is one of the best season for Kolkata.. Its a historical place where you will get to know about old Calcutta during British period.. Its a more or less a meusum only so can't expect much from this place so better think as a picnic place..

This is a British era monument under Department of culture, GOI. I didn't go inside the compound to the garden area in this visit as primarily I wanted to have a night view of the monument. Like others, there is entry timing for this also.

If you are in Kolkata, and you don't visit this place Victoria Memorial, then you haven't seen Kolkata. This again is a very great piece of architecture like a lot of other landmarks in the city. The museum is not so well maintained by the government. To top it, people dirty the place by spitting on the walls with the... More

The memorial is an awesome place to visit. You can spend your evening in a much leisurely way. The place is well maintained. Be sure to reach early so as to avoid the long cue for tickets.

This is the most important place to visit in Kolkata. Made of pure white marble, green lawn all around this is a must visit place for all who visit Kolkata. The statue of queen Victoria just at the entrance of the Palace is very beautiful.
