It's a Colonial masterpiece. The place is well maintained and provides a decent walk into the history.

One of the Oldest heritage building in Kolkata. The architecture of the the White Marble building is truly amazing. It is in built in a huge open space. Kids will love to play in the Park. Inside the memorial, there are many painting, arms kept for the display. Nothing to do much inside the memorial and it will be over... More

The memorial is a large complex with an impressive architecture but unfortunately, it hasn't been put to good use. Random works are presented throughout and some of the pieces on display have no dates or where they were acquired from. I was slightly disappointed by the content of the museum. I would have expected a more in-dept true history of... More
