Marble Palace Kolkata, Kolkata Reviews - Write a Review
A price of living history. It's a museum, it's a palace. All rolled into one. Don't miss it! It's pretty hidden in a nook in the city, not front and center. But if you have any attraction for the old glory of Bengali society, you shouldn't miss it.
This is a privately owned property; the entire mansion with the art collections is held in a Trust. The trustees are the family members (no outsider ) who are direct decendants of the founder. The collection is open for public viewing. Rules written at the gate. Strictly no photography anywhere in the property. There is a small zoo. Only serious renaissance period art lovers need come here. Others please stay away. Do not come here to simply hang around. Entry is free but visitors can tip at their discretion. No staff demands money as some have written in the reviews. So only if you are keen to see classical European paintings etc, do come. Else don't. It is our private property. Idle jay walkers may be prosecuted. We maintain the place with our own money. No aid from anywhere. People who write rubbish here need to take a reality check.
A place worth visit. Would have been a hit among tourists provided the required maintained.A quiet place to spend your weekend marvelling the sculptures and art during the British era.
Regarding beauty and heritage the place deserves 5 star, but they don't have any proper rules, people are not allowed to take pictures, even don't have permission to enter the palace unless they don't hire a guide and pay a good amount of money. So they are getting money from the government as well as from the visitors.
Privately held property in the heart of Kolkata. Beautiful courtyard. Also houses a number of birds.
