I visited Kolkata for work and managed to squeeze in some time to visit Victoria Memorial. The museum itself is beautiful but more importantly, it is well maintained, including the surrounding parks. Do visit the water fountain on your way out.

Pros : A lovely place to visit. Great for kids and families. Cons : Some people are terrible are being in line and have a very mob mentality at the ticket counter. So you have to physically muscle your self at the ticket counter.

If visiting Kolkata then this is a place to visit and experience Kolkata or Calcutta (previous name) during the British ruling. You will find old artillery, pictures and few other things.

You need to pay 500 rupees to enter the museum but only 10 rupees to walk within the gardens. As my Dad is elderly, we went with the second option. The gardens are exquisitely kept and vibrant. There is a lovely calm, soothing vibe here....More

Not that I am aware if. We arrived by coach so it did not apply in our case. I did not notice other visitors with luggage whilst there
