Only when you visit Marble Palace you can sense the grandeur that was Bengal 100 years back. Be it the colossal wooden statue of Queen Victoria or the mammoth dance hall with gigantic Belgian mirrors covering the whole wall or the Painting room with exquisite painting of a woman whose eyes follow you wherever you move in the room -...

This has been and has the potential to be an absolutely magnificent venue. But and a big but is the terrible state that it is in. Filth and ingrained dust cover everything. There are some magnificent pieces of artwork and furnishings but the lack of care overrides everything. We were asked to take off our shoes before entering and when... More

The Marble Palace is not really a part of the usual tourist traps but if you want to experience a slice of the city's babu culture, this place is a must visit. Located just a lane away from the Jorashanko Thakur Bari, just the first view of this building's impressive facade will stun you. The Marble Palace has a hotchpotch... More

On entering you think this is just full of tacky crap but then you realise there are items worth a fortune mixed with tacky crap so you go round again.

A wonderfully quirky and eclectic collection of objects collected by a rich Bengali babu.I just wish that they'd close the zoo.
