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

Its dusty and disorganised but a delight to visit . Its an example of how Indian royalty lived and mostly original in how it was.

I could never expect to find such a beautiful palace in Kolkata. I red that you need a reservation for the visit but they actually let you in by paying a tip to the man at the gate. An old man is leading you the way and giving you information (and also expect to be tipped). Unfortunately no pictures are... More

We had heard a lot about this place and could make it only in our third stint of stay in Kolkata.The entrance to the premise itself is very unimpressive as you drive through a narrow crowded lane.The moment you enter, the guard points out to a notice indicating that you need prior Govt. permission to enter the premises.He also mentioned...

One needs to get permission from West Bengal Tourist Department to visit this place and photography is not allowed. But once you are here after negotiation crowded narrow lanes you will get an experience of Kolkata Heritage. The palace has beautiful gardens and artifacts. You can get a guide (not so equipped with information though). And the place could have... More

People who have a taste for art and culture will enjoy Marble Palace, Calcutta. Indian visitors will enjoy more than western visitors as because almost everything is western collection ( artifacts & statues ). There is a good taste of history in here. To end, this is a very beautiful place.
