On every winter visit to Kolkata, Academy ( shortened name) is a must for watching Bengali plays. This winter we were there twice and enjoyed the plays. However, the owner needs to improve the auditorium, especially the rickety chairs and the wash rooms.

All the exhibits should remain open for public viewing. Only 3 rooms in the ground floor are open for viewing.

Bengal has been a State where Art is nurtured by the artists. This Academy is the best destination for young artists to display their work for the visitors and tourists. Through out the year many exhibitions are held and one can see and appreciate the work of different artists. A must visit attraction.
