Victoria Memorial Hall Overview

Ranked 1 of 8 sightseeing in Alipore

The greatest treasure trove of India, Victoria Memorial is Kolkata’s pride. Envisioned by Lord Curzon, Victoria Memorial Hall is the place tourists get a glimpse of Calcutta’s Visual History. This museum was opened to all in 1921, which clearly traces the pre- independence period of India through statues and pictures of significant men.

This art museum is under the Department of Culture, Government of India, which preserves the manuscripts, sculptures, armours, postage stamps, rare books and paintings of the British period. Apart from these things, watching a Light and Sound show held in both Bengali and English can be interesting.

Very good paintings to be seen inside the hall , though we couldn't see lifestyle of queen Victoria or the rooms she stayed in that era. There were no toilets near by, they were locked or out of use when we found one in corner of the Victoria memorial park , however the park has 3 to 4 lakes or large ponds which give it a peaceful and serene effect .
