“Informative but rundown”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

This building is a part of our history as well as India. Exhibits extensive and the section about the Raj is very informative. Unfortunately it is rather run-down and in need of TLC, which makes a clear statement about Calcutta itself. The gardens are beautiful.

“one of the best place to visit in kolkata”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

It is made in white marble and is a perfect blend of Mughal and European architectural styles.
The Victoria Memorial is also a museum that houses some rare pictures, and statues of men and women who played a prominent part in the history of India and develop a pride in their past especially in relation to the history of Calcutta. In addition the museum also houses dresses, along with several artillery weapons from the Battle of Plassey.
The Victoria Memorial Hall is open to the public throughout the year from 10:00am to 5:00pm
