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.

  • It's a Kolkata's most well known landmark. It’s one of the most beautiful historical architecture in India. The outside garden was also very well maintained & decorated. The memorial hall is a museum having different paintings, art effect & so many old weapons could be the interest of many tourists.

  • Very good and nice place to visit. I had visited this place along with my friends. This was my first visit and I would like to tell that, I liked this place very Much. This place was really very clean. We clicked many photos here. The garden was maintained very well by the gardeners here. Visit this place is recommended.

  • This monument is about century old made in memory of Queen Victoria. The museum portrays British era period and related things. The upkeep of the place was poor. Most of the weapons or literature kept was in bad shape. Seems no care done since opening. This could have been better else we loose great evidences of our history

  • Good place to see in Kolkata. But photography inside the memorial is not allowed & much of places inside memorial is closed. You can see hardly 2-3 rooms. It looks great from outside. Better to spend time in garden.
