The fabulous collections of Nehru Children's Museum of Kolkata include puppets depicting the great Indian epics and gorgeous dolls dressed up in national costumes of different countries of the world. The dolls are being donated and they have a name placard of the persons who donated them.

One of the best things in Kolkata for kids ...but for some reason is a bit hidden from tourism glare... Not many visitors were seen ..but the collection is just 'seeing is believing'.
The icings on the cake are the depictions of Mahabharata and Ramayana ...truly amazing .. Just loved it

We stumbled across this little place heading away from the Maidan, and am glad we decided to pop in.

There are plenty of ad-hoc toys and dolls in national dress on the first couple of floors, and a room dedicated to models depicted the ubiquitous Ganesha. The real fun is on the upper floors, which house gruesome and visceral tableau of Hindu myths - the Mahabharata and Ramayana galleries are laden with giants, demons, battles, giant snakes, beheadings, disembowelments, and all kinds of almost-family-friendly fun. No doubt this will go down brilliantly with gore-hungry kids, though good luck explaining the labyrinthine plots!

A very good, interesting and learning place for children as well as adults. There is so much to learn here... starting from mythology, our culture and different cultures of people from other countries too. This place has a huge collection of dolls from all over the world as well as all the districts of West Bengal.

This place not only serves as a museum, it's also a place of learning. Every children should visit, rather the adults too should visit. It's one of a kind in India.

It's a dream world for the children. It has got an immense collection of global toys. From India to America.
Only draw back is its location.
It is not properly marked so that it can be easily spotted from the main road.

Recently been to Nehru Children's Museum after 2 decades. Earlier my grandfather used to take me there when i came to Kolkata on vacation. Now was my 2.5 yr old son's first trip to the doll museum. The place has not changed a lot, but in general sense requires better upkeep and maybe govt initiative. It is run by an NGO , National Cultural Mission.

The museum is a five storied building on JL Nehru Road, close to Rabindra Sadan Metro Station. Out of five, three are museum and other two houses other activities related to children like painting, dance classes ans other simular workshops. Other notable sites around are Birla Planetarium, St. Pauls Cathedral, Nandan, Academy of Fine Arts.

The place is a dream land for a kid because it is stuffed with dolls and toys. Left wing gallery and the landing on all three floors are lined with showcases filled with toys and dolls. There are dolls from various states of India as well as various countries. Some are aquired and some are donated. It gives the child a glimpse of the world. Right wing gallery on second and third floor houses even better exhibit. Second flood displays the story of Mahabharat and third floor displays the story of Ramayana through tiny but detailed models depicting various scenes from the epics. The lighting and 3D effect of the figures make it attractive for children. While younger ones ask their parents about the scene, older ones can read the descriptin in gist wtitten in 3 languages. It is a great place to start learning our mythology. The miniature models get embedded in the mind, as it happened to me!

Current rates of tickets are INR 10 for children up to 16 yrs and INR 20 for anyone above 16 yrs. In my opinion it is a great place to spend a good 1-2 hrs with your kud if visiting Kolkata or if staying here.
