As a fan of Tagore i felt great while visiting this place. Pictures, documents, information about him just made this place unique from Silaidaha and other places where he lived or visited. They've a ticket system, for foreigners 50 rupees.

Rabindra Bharati University Museum is a nice museum for the lovers of literatures. Rabindra Nath Tagore, a noble laureate was a great poet. The museum is very educative and provides life, art, collection, and work of Tagore.

A Nobel Laureate! His art, His work, His collection and His Life. All tucked away in this massive structure popularly called as Rabindra Bharati University Museum, which as the name suggests doubles up as a university and a Museum to the followers of the phenomena called ‘Tagore’. The structure is maintained well though there is room for improvement. My visit... More

The museum takes anything from an hour to two and a half to go around - depending on how much to read and stop to soak up the atmosphere. There are some great photos on display, and the Chinese...

We enjoyed our visit to the house of Rabindranath Tagore, India's greatest poet. Well worth the 50 Rp entry fee for the excellent exhibition on his life and times.

Once we got used to the chaos [and the lack of maintainance of everything! ] we enjoyed the vibe of the city , we loved our trip to the totally unspoiled Sunderbans in particular the spectacular river trip.
