This is an interesting mansion to spend a few minutes if you're in the area. However, the way it is run is an embarrassment. There is a big sign at the gate that says "open 10:00am-2:00pm" and "admission free", but if you try to enter,...More

The palace is more than hundred years old and a big heritage place on the heart of Kolkata. It was built during the British reign and still looks like a new palace. Must visit place.

I just returned from the Marble Palace and it is just as idiosyncratic as the other reviews state. First, the museum is free. We tipped our guide (you have to go around with one) but didn't give money to anyone else. As mentioned in other...More

We were pleased to have visited the Marble Palace to see the architecture of the building and to look at all the exhibits and paintings in the building. Very few other tourists at the time of our visit

Located off chittaranjan avenue. Nearest Metro station is MG road.. The Museum Consists of the private collection of Raja Rajendra Mullick. Believe it or not there is a small private zoo located in the premises.
