Beautifully maintained,the marble looks so white and fresh, as though it had been built yesterday. It's basically a tribute to Queen Victoria,large statue of her in front... More

It is the best place to visit , in kolkata, it offers lots of open green/lung space, Make sure ur there before 4:30 pm as the tickets for the museum are not sold after 4:30, you have to buy a separate ticket to enter the garden and another one for the museum.

Loved the wide open grounds, general feeling of well-being in the people who visit this place, the huge bronze statue of Queen Victoria and the elegance, pomp and splendor associated with the overall white memorial.

I had a great experience with my friends here.Its one of the finest marble work. An example of Indian art with beautiful sight and scenery.This is a good place for History buffs and also hosts light & sound shows which is a must see.

India's Buckingham Palace with the Mall & all. Set in beautiful grounds & maintained very well considering we are. If this was properly organised people would come from all over the World to see this just like in London. They don't appreciate what they have

We only visited the gardens and out side of the memorial, the architecture was impressive. It only cost ten rupees and was a short 15 minuet visit! Would recommend visiting in the morning as can get very hot during the day! Joe & Nat https://joeandnat.wordpress.com/

The building set in a perfect backdrop and large garden..provides an excellent historical recap in a rich architecural way. Either you can just walk around the building externally in the garden's or enter it to view the museum.. a must for some one visting Kolkatta..
