Being inclined to history, I found this place simply amazing. The way history of Indian independence movement is documented in a manner of flow as one passes thru the Victoria Memorial Hall is superb. Many details hitherto unknown gets unraveled when one spends time here. Contribution of Kolkata and thinkers of Bengal are also captured nicely. The gardens surrounding were... More

This is just a fabulous museum in Kolkata.... Awesome interior / architecture which is based on mixture of British and Mughal culture. It is established on 1921. Any one can spend a whole day there with family or group. Also this is a excellent place for a photographer. There are so points to collect as photocopy

Like many buildings in Kolkata it is grand and majestic. Completed in 1921 to commemorate the life and glorious past of Queen Victoria who was empress of India in the time of her reign. It houses some beautiful works of art , and is well worth a visit . The history of the raj is well outlined within its walls.

This monument is set at the end of an impressive drive. It is white, very large and in the Victorian gothic style of design, rather like the Albert hall in London. It is very large inside, and the museum exhibits are quiet interesting, but really the building itself is the star of the show. worth seeing as an excellent example... More
