  • Interesting Place to Visit surrounded by lush green gardens. Nothing in specific to see but the beauty of architecture is mesmerizing. Old Canon and Weapons on display inside the building. 
  • This surprising piece mounted revealing arrogance of British colonialism and its total indifference to the Indian architectural traditions is especially by the Museum of Calcutta inside.

  • Architectural beauty it is! The construction will drive you into thoughts. Lawns are well maintained but the pond has stagnant water. Wifi is an added feature. Museum pieces are quite boring.

It is dedicated to the memory of Queen Victoria (1819–1901) and is now a museum and tourist destination under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture. The Memorial lies on the Maidan (grounds) by the bank of the Hooghly River, near Jawaharlal Nehru road.
