We had a tour to the Victoria Memorial. Very interesting to see and hear about the history. Can get very busy inside so be prepared to be pushed along. But well worth a visit if you get the chance.

This magnanimous place is a must visit in Kolkata. It provides enough opportunities for taking some great pictures. This surely give the Taj Mahal a run for its money. This Victoria time architectural marvel is worth a visit.

On a recent visit to Kolkata for a wedding in the family, I and my son squeezed out time to visit the imposing & stately Victoria Memorial and came back pretty impressed. It was built in white marble almost 100 years ago by the then Viceroy of India - Lord Curzon as a befitting memorial for Queen Victoria of England.... More

This place is really a great place where everyone can enjoy and passing time comfortably. During my college days whenever I used to wait for a train journey break for about 5 to 8 hours I used to go to Victoria Memorial hall and passed my time easily to enjoy the Architectural design and other photo gallery etc,

This place has that victirian era charm. This place can be visited for early morning walk, museum sightseeing later in the day and for lighting in the late evening...All three experiences are amazing.

Built by Viceroy Curzon as memorial to Victoria, the building offers several themed exhibits on Calcutta development. Well worth seeing how Calcutta has altered over the last 300 years. Plus a gallery for new exhibitions. Easily visited in an hour by browsing through the exhibits.
