Well worth the visit

Well worth a visit. The building is impressive both inside and out. Relax in the gardens afterwards. Afterwards you can do a ride on a horse drawn carriage if you want.

The Palace known as Mullick Bari (Raja Rajendra Mullick, a rich Merchant). It's a awesome palace for heritage marble structures,small zoo,the grand piano, paintings, sculptures,artefacts,statues,furniture etc. Unfortunately photography not allowed. A must visit palace, it's located in the middle of chaotic North Calcutta near by Mahatma Gandhi Road Metro Station.

What an odd place. It's like visiting an old eccentric relative who now lives in genteel poverty amongst a mish-mash of treasures collected over a lifetime: antiques, chandeliers, bird cages, rolled carpets, sculptures and dilapidated paintings in Victorian, Neoclassical, traditional Bengali and Chinese style. I wouldn't have missed it for the world - utterly fascinating. I started to reflect on... More

This is a must see in a visit to Kolkata. Its within walking distance from the MG Road metro station. Once you come up, take the 2nd left lane keeping the Mahajati Sadan on your right. You need a permit from the tourist office in BBD Bagh to enter. However, you can just turn up at the place and tip... More

I have to say that it was a few years back that I visited this palace and was blown away by the incredible art - sculptures, paintings,artefacts,in fact anything opulent seemed to have made it's way here. Dusty and dimly lit place does take the shine of what could be a brilliant collection shown in all its glory, however the... More

Supposedly you have to get a pass from the Govt tourist office 24 hours in advance of visiting, but our hotel told us it wasn't necessary - as long as you tip the guard on the gate. Actually it was the self appointed guide who first put his hand out - 100 rupees was enough, but at the end he... More

A must see! It is a glorious mansion still partly lived in by the owner. It is slowly crumbling and is in need of a major restoration programme but ironically that's part of it's glory. But the rest is open to the public. It is full of treasures! A multi-million pounds collection of paintings and statues and furniture, as they... More

Fascinating collection of art from across the globe in what must have been an exquisite Palace in its day.

This wasn't on our 'to-do' list and there are reasons why. It's essentially a private art collection that the government seized control of to add to the list of tourist destinations. The 'guides' are little more than street kids who take you around the building and recite the titles of the pieces by rote - the ones with labels. They... More

It is a lovely palace in disrepair, mostly european artwork in need of restoration and very little lighting. My children enjoyed the birds. However when entering we were informed that it was 150Rupees at the gate but not to pay inside. We learnt this through our driver who translated for us. However we tipped the guide anyway (for 20 minute... More
