As a foreigner, you have to pay if I remember correctly 150 rupees to go inside the building but if you wanna just visit the gardens, you pay around 10-20 rupees. If you are on a tight budget, i would only recommend the gardens.

The Victoria Memorial is an extraordinary, grand building with lush gardens in Kolkata (Calcutta), West Bengal, which was built before independence by Lord Curzon. It was built in the memory of Queen Victoria and is a museum open to public.
