In my brief visit to Kolkata recently, I didnt get to enter this place but clicked some pictures from the entrance. What a beauty!

You need 2-3 hrs to visit this place...but highly recommended if you are visiting Kolkata for a vacation.

Victoria memorial is a must visit place if you are tourist to kolkata and like sight seeing. This is huge place and will take at least 2 to 3 hrs in roaming within the campus.A wonderfull monument to watch and you could find the British heritage in side the palace. The campus has good gardening and trees falling down the pathway. A great place to spend quality time with friends, family and romantic couples.

Going to Kolkata and reading some guides, we read that this was one of the main attractions of the region. We decided to take a cab to the center, and eventually ended up at the Victoria Memorial. Although the place looks quite nice (especially the surroundings) the museum did not really impress me. But it is a nice place to walk around and spend an afternoon.

Note that you do need to pay to go in, and we were charged a large multiple of the regular fee for Indians visiting this place regularly. So don't be surprised if this happens to you as well.

The attraction was great and knowledgeable but one thing kept pricking me which was that all college or university students, sat in the garden and were making out.I had gone to visit this place with my family so I felt awkward when I saw that a couple covered their area with a mewspaper and were making out. Anyway, the inside museum was really good.
