A beautiful place, an oasis in the middle of madness! Outside the complex there are horse driven carriages in which you can take a ride along the beautiful tree lined roads of west-central Kolkata. Upon entering the well kept grounds, children play around, couples find a place to enjoy, families relax, artists bring out their sketch pads... and time flies.... More

This is worth a visit. The building and gardens are magnificent. The art collection inside is brilliant. I've been here twice and loved it each time.

The building is impressive and the surrounding garden also has its charm, and that's about it. The "museum" inside is very disappointing. Still a must see in Kolkata though.

One of the finest creations of British Raj. Wonderful structure with lot of flora and fauna. Museum inside is exceptionally good. Its a place of learning and one of the best landmarks of Calcutta now Kolkata. Must see whenever in Kolkata.
