About The Victoria Memorial, Kolkata

The Victoria memorial is a glorious reminder of India’s colonial past and it’s present obsession of all things western. Even so, it has assimilated well in Kolkata’s mind and soul; it is now also part of their pride. A gorgeous marble building houses a museum and various exhibitions that enlighten the visitor with Kolkata’s colonial history. The statues of King George V and Queen Victoria are stately and frankly a bit out of place in this era where Victoria memorial has become more about Kolkata than a tribute to the Queen.

A beautiful monument of Colonial Era that still adorns a part of Kolkata and serves as an interesting tourist attraction. While The Victoria Memorial Ticket Prices varies for locals and foreigners, The Victoria Memorial Ticket Cost remain same for all. Don’t forget to visit the museum while you are at it. The entry to museum is free with The Victoria Memorial Tickets. Buy Tickets for The Victoria Memorial and spend some nice time indulging in the remnants of the past.

  • Incredible! It was much larger than I expected. The whole ground & museum is beautiful and rich full of history and tributes. It's a very popular landmark and busy with tourists all day. Hours here just fly by like seconds. I loved every minute of it.

  • Good place to visit. The place is just beautiful. You can visit this place every week and still not get tired of it. The atmosphere is also good. you can sit on the grass and relax. On a day with fine weather, it's an ideal place to visit.

  • Take your time & explore the museum & the huge surrounding garden. It is one of the premier examples of colonial architecture which is still maintained in it's glory in Calcutta. Start your visit by going inside the memorial & sip in the history. Later on come out into the surrounding garden, spend your time along the banks of the ponds & usher in the evening as you see the afternoon chaos give away to the evening tranquillity.

  • It takes you back into the British Era. Reminds you of the importance the city of Calcutta enjoyed back then. Quite well maintained by the authorities. The tickets cost just 20 rupees for this trip back in history. Must visit. Preferably late afternoon to avoid the heat. Avoid Monday as the Museum is closed and you cannot get inside the memorial. The park is however open on the outside.

  • Take my word. Leave no doubt. This is that one helluva place that doesn't need any reviews. This monument of the British raj is beyond reproach. Come and see for yourself. Being there is being transported to another era. So have you reached Heaven! I have had for sure.👌💘
