The victorian building is a must visit when you are in kolkata. situated amidst vast open ground the building houses a museum of british artifacts. Strolling around the surrounding garden is very refreshing. Located in the heart of the city.

A monument that stands out for its wonderful architecture. Set amidst lawns which are well manicured, ponds and fountains, this place is ideal for a picnic. The museum is a treasure house for history buffs. Definitely a must visit place in Kolkata.

The premises can be maintained better keeping in mind the stunning beauty of the building. But a great experience overall! Thank you Kolkata :)

Definitely worth a visit, lot to see inside, but just the building is so beautiful. If you’re a stamp collector, the building depicts on one of the stamps of KGV Silver Jubilee set issued in 1935.

There are lots of people in the park posing for pictures and of course taking selfies so I can't see that there would be any problem with your situation.

if you wish to visit the place properly then 2 to 3 hours are required. Morning hours or little late afternoon is ok.
