Nice area to visit and spend a while. Building itself is very impressive. Was really busy the day we visited and we had a lot of requests for pictures.

When you are in Kolkata ,you shouldn't miss out this place. Avoid going on week end because it is over crowded with local people in addition to tourists.Monday it is closed and try to spend more time then you can understand the legacy of this Memorial.My advice don't go with sight seeing trip and go alone.

It's a must visit place . Well maintained .we went during summer which was not a good idea as the weather was very uncomfortable! But once inside it was a treasure trove of information about Kolkata from the beginning ! Thoroughly enjoyed and just did not know how time went by !!

This is one of the Kolkata's staple destination,a beautiful building made with white marble. Not only that,it is surrounded by beautiful and organised greenery and lake. A must visit place for all,to roam around,to explore the museum or to do picnic.
