Marble Palace was nice to visit and worth a stop when in Kolkata, but it is not going to be the most memorable place I have visited. The place is full of art - paintings, sculptures, etc. It is so busy with art that you don't even know where to look. Things are everywhere and it's a big mish-mash. Normally... More

Just so interesting. For those from other parts of the world, or even from India, it is worth exploring.

This place is so stunning: full of art and very well preserved. Too bad you're not allowed to take pictures so you could keep on marvelling at it.

Marble Palace is a must in a tourists visit to Kolkata. It is a personal collection of marble status, paintings by a businessman in the 19th century. Everyday thousands of people throng the place to see the collection. There is a zoo with various birds and children do go and visit that too. Its one of the best attractions of... More

If you want to see how the Zamindars of Bengal lived you must visit the Marble Palace (of the Mullicks) at Muktaram Babu Street 5 mins away from Jorasako Thakurbari. You might have to bribe the Security Gaurds/Darwans at the Gate to enter but it is worth it. These Gaurds and errand boys will be your guide round the palace... More

The good thing is that all the things which you see outside the building and inside the building are made up of Marbels. Inside the building you get to see some of things which is worth millions and billions of rupees in today's market, that's why photography is strictly not permitted inside or outside the building. The guide and guards... More

You must take a tour with a guide whose knowledge of English may be very limited. He may try to guide you around as rapidly as possible, which is a pity because there is so much to see. Our guide spoke a minimum of English and would accept a 'tip' of not less than 150 Rs.

This place was amazing. Don't forget your permit and be aware the guards/tour guides are absolute rip off merchants and useless. Don't let this stop you as the collection, the house and the gardens are worth the hassle.
