  • This amazing Palace to the neoclassical colonnade is a witness of the sumptuous life of the successful Bengali families of yesteryear. It is still inhabited by descendants of the founder. Everything is amazing: the collection of classical statues, paintings, porcelains, not to mention the menagerie at the bottom of the Park.

  • This place is almost 200 years old. It is a private museum and is looked after by the sixth generation of the original builder (that's what the guide told) who live next to the museum. The museum has ...  more »
  • An amazing thing, a half-ruined building crammed with artworks, including a Rubens and Titian dirty incredibly dirty. The works filled with dust and cobwebs. An affront against the value of the works crammed into this building. You should book in advance but without knowing our Indian driver charged us a modest WAD orderlies and we might enter quietly. The place could be fantastic but the works should be treated with more respect.

  • This is a great place to visit.Beautiful Archituctue and historic designs. Its inside the heart of the city. At the gate the Watchmen will ask for permission, then he will ask for 100 INR. Further inside also there will be guides behind you for money. Its a good place and maintained. Still family of the owners lives there. So the whole palace is not opened for Public. There is lot of hidden details of the place, the guide doesnt know anything much.
  • Good collection of paintings by Raja Mullick.Single wood carvings are Awesome. But due to Low lighting you can't even see the paintings and some other antiques.
  • The art in this palace was definitely worth 5 stars, if not even more. Ranging from amazing Ming vases to European paintings and a beautiful marble floor, every art lover should consider going here. The reason for the 3 stars is how the staff took care of the place. When we wanted to enter, a man with a spear told us that we need a permission from the office for tourism. We didn't have it so he told us to pay him 100 INR, a fair entrance price for a place without an entrance price. We wanted to have a look at the countless amazing sculptures and paintings but they didn't let us in without a guide whom they offers us for 200 INR per person. I told them we couldn't afford the price as students and asked them about 100 INR per person what they immediately accepted. Our guide, a young boy, just pointed out obvious things while going through the palace. He named all the named of the paintings and sculptures which could be read on the item, anyway. Questions from our side remained unanswered. He didn't seem to have any interest and respect in the sculptures and art since he was frequently touching them. I would still suggest anybody who is interested in art to go there, since it truly is a breathtaking place. It's would have been a better experience with a set and official price and staff which actually cares about art.
  • Highly recommended if you want to see the beautiful carvings.. there's marble, there's paintings artefacts everywhere.. colourful birds.. big clocks.. big mirrors.. Amazing place
  • Come and indulge in this one-of-a-kind Palace of Raja Rajendra Mullick !!
