If you are planning to visit Kolkata, you must definitely include marble palace in your list. A much-loved attraction, this beautiful palace was built by Raja Rajendra Mullick- the wealthiest merchant of the 18th century, celebrating his wealth and prosperity. A unique blend of culture and art, the palace is donned with pillars, all intricately carved in beautiful designs, and marble walls worth looking at. It is said that merchant was quite fond of collecting art and antiques, something which is quite evident in its large collection of painting and sculpture.The paintings housed here are painted by famous artists like Reynolds and Titian that nestles quietly alongside the variety artefacts like clocks, urns and whatnot! Since it is built in traditional Bengali style, you will find quintessential Bengali elements like thakur-dalan and open courtyards in the building.

Excellent showcase of antique paintings,show pieces,sculptures. One may feel surprised as to what level an aristocrat of that time may go to collect such lavish and beautiful pieces of collections. May as well imagine the amount of wealth he had to spend!! Not well maintained as compared to similar museums. No entry fees..Take enough time to get astonished and to praise its beauty.
This place was built in the late 1835 , by a gold businessman for displaying his personal collections of marble sculptures , bronze sculptures and marvellous paintings. This is a wonderful place to visit if art inspires you. Very underrated place yet very beautiful. Entry to this place is quite tricky and also a guide is needed to understand the interiors of the palace.
This place is full of sculptures , made of marbles. Mostly of ancient greek God/Goddess. Exploring it , it seemed to me that founder of this museum has a hobby to gather sculptures of "VENUS", GODDESS of love.
Amazing place. What a collection. Mind blowing. A place to must visit when you are in Kolkata. They have a little zoo. And most amazing is the inside the building The Collection!!!!!!
At best mediocre. At least it's free. There are some things to see here, but a need to take the shoes off to walk a dirty floor is not my cup of tea. Unfortunately, many paintings have really bad light to watch details. Most of art is not well secured and deteriorates with time.
