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.

  • There is not much to see here apart from couples and tourists. The main structure is nothing more than a souvenir that reminds us of the British colonial times. But the museum is good. It has many scripts and records of old times preserved well.

  • Don't go on Monday . Museum will be closed. It has very huge premises and wonderful marble structure. Good for lazy family picnic spot. Here you can also see a lot of couple and wedding photography as well. Good place in Kolkata for local picnic spot.

  • Very beautiful architecture. The landscaping and the lake is awesome. Nice for family outing. Very crowded at holidays. Entry fee is only 10 Rs.

  • Victoria memorial, Kolkata is a white marble museum opened in 1921. Great architecture with large dome and royal exhibits. Entry fee Rs 10 with no inside photography. Closed on Mondays. The floor design in marble is mind blowing.

  • One of the major landmarks to visit if you are on a trip to Kolkata. Convenient taxi drop-off and pick-up. Entrance fees are higher for non-Indian guests. The lake and garden add to the beauty of the structure. Keep 2-3 hours in hand for the visit, depending on how well you want to go over the museum artifacts. However, I don't understand why people are still not allowed to take pictures inside, much like other such places in India. These pictures are anyway publicly available. Why not let people click more pictures and give more publicity to the place?
