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 nice place to go on a holiday with your family. This is an example of beautiful architecture. Pleasing greenery, big lakes, vast and rich museum will definitely make you feel better. It's a famous place for couples too. If you are a Bengali you must come here at least once in your life.

  • Very beautiful place. Must visit this place with your family. Its an historic palace where queen Victoria stayed for many years when British ruled India. Now it becomes a museum where queen Victoria's used utensils has been kept here. Even some photographs of old Calcutta is placed inside the museum. Its very beautiful inside. One will see old large size sword and big guns there. Its very helpful for children to get knowledge of some historical equipment's which is used for war against British. But beware of the couple's who sit outside of museum. Otherwise the Victoria memorial hall is very beautiful place to visit with family. Entry fees also very cheap. One can easily afford the ticket cost. Thank you.
