Has huge potential for attracting tourists, the garden areas can be maintained by hiring some landscape architect. The entry fee has been kept very low, which can be raised, and earnings in turn utilized to maintain the property

So much of interest but the lighting was extremely bad and many of the exhibits needing maintenance/restoration.

It is a reasonably maintained memory hall. Entry fee is Rs 20 for Indian citizens and 200 for foreigners. Time : 9-5 Cameras are allowed in the garden, but not inside the hall. The hall displays old paintings, instruments,weapons etc of the British period. The architecture is quite good too. Verdict : Good for a one time visit, especially for... More

We landed in Kolkata after leaving Dubai and hit the chaos of the city so headed here to escape. Beautiful building and nice gardens. inside full of art works and letters from Queen Victoria.

Great place with spread out gardens, especially enjoyable during these winter months . Treat for photo shoots and simply to wander in the lovely surrounding gardens... the museum inside is not much to comment but the place itself more than make's up for the visit

In summer you can spend a great relief from the heat and enjoy the cool breeze flows here. In winter it's a place to... More
