Marble Palace Kolkata - Review
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.

Marble Palace Kolkata, Kolkata Reviews
This place is a magnificent specimen of wealthiness of a land lord of Bengal.Here you can see all sorts of historical artifacts, paintings, figures, birds and many other gorgeously decorated household things like old grand father clock, chandelier, mirrors etc. But , the problem is , on account of dim light in some of the interior portions, old oil paintings are hard to understand. These oil paintings doesn't look well maintained also.Children are not allowed to the 2nd floor of this building owing to the brittle artifacts and paintings. There is a small zoo inside, that doesn't looks like well maintained too. The guide provided by the place is not up to the mark, he just pointed out the names of the artifacts which is already engraved in it, apart from that he doesn't have any faintest idea of those things, if you are an enthusiast of old relics, bring your own guide in with yourselves, rather than relying on them. There is no ticketing system, you only have to pay to your guide and the guard as per your will.!!
It's a private museum very well maintained with guides for small groups to give one tour of the building. Very sincere staff. The mini zoo with greenery around was very impressive.
It is a nice place to visit. A treat to the history enthusiasts. The variety of birds attract attention. Guides are cooperating. But they don't allow to stand and stare that helps to grasp beauty and charm more.
Doesn't allow admission of children. Only 18+ allowed upstairs. Better to go individually and not with family. You'll have to keep the kids downstairs waiting for you while you explore upstairs. They say it's a family decision of not allowing children below 18 years of age. Very bad.
it is a very good place for travelers. Many beautiful and costly item present their. i love this place but i give it 2 star because this place lose t identity due to no maintenance. Floor broken, ceiling supported by wooden pics, most of the animal not present in cage. we only imagine their past glory. we do not understand why this place so much neglected. their are no ticket system entry. you get permission from west Bengal tourism department. but no tension few staff offer you bribe entry. Behavior of this staff very bad. some guide are present their for you. They also need money.
