A good historic place to visit when in Kolkata. However at this time the building is renovated and colour washed, hence you might not get the picture you want. The garden appears to be neglected, nevertheless many local tourists were seen despite the rain. Unfortunately the museum was closed when I visited.Supposed to be good too.

It was nice learning about the British rule in the Bengal and well preserved photographs, scripts, items etc. Moreover the Memorial itself is splendid and the Park surrounding it is a good place to kill time.

The Victoria memorial Hall is a museum with a lot of paintings, but the rich history from the British colonists have impressed me. You get a good impression of this British colonial period, which is well explained. Beside the building, the garden is also worth to see.

A very unique museum with diverse collection. Most beautify are the 300 year old paintings of modern towns like Haridwar, Allahabad and other indian cities which are so impressive that keeps visitor attracted towards them.
