In the heart of the city easy to go, i just took a yellow taxi and dropped in back gate of the Hall. I was very excited to see a General's picture from my country "Mathbar Singh Thapa".

This place is the main attraction of Kolkata. It is a beautiful building with lots of old and memorial things laying for tourists. The building is located in the centre of the city with never ending structure. It is located amidst lash green gardens and birla planetarium is very near to this place. A Must Visit

The hall is beautiful and hosts a small exhibition of paintings. The park around is a lovely place to walk around and enjoy the view. It's also one of the only places you'll see young couples sitting close together, it's a funny thing.

Been here twice and am impressed by how clean and well maintained it is. After staying for a year in Kolkata, one gets a little used to the congestion, dust and dirt. However, the Vic memorial comes across as a wonderful surprise with clean and well maintained gardens, statues etc. The museum is a little bit of a let down... More

We visited this place in early June. This is a very good place to visit in Kolkata to feel its heritage of British empire. Though the crowd is very high you may try choosing off time or working days to visit the place. You will also find lot other things nearby to visit and feel the beauty of Kolkata heritage.
