The palace is on the tourist map but not on the tourist map...... Technically one needs permission of Tourism Department to visit. There is no entry fee or ticket and at first the security asks u to leave, then upon request offers u to enter upon payment of a bribe of your choice....Rs 50 for a family will suffice :)... More

The Marble Palace is definitely worth your time in Kolkata. You must obtain permission to visit from the Department of Tourism, which was a very straight forward procedure. The place itself is super interesting and is full with paintings and artifacts. You must follow the guide - not a guide really as their language is very limited, but more like... More

The Marble Palace was built in the 1830s by a wealthy Bengali family, who had amassed an impressive art collection. The building is massive and grand with its many huge columns on the exterior. The first thing you notice inside, however, is how dark they keep the place, presumably to protect the works of art. It is so dark you... More

This large private home set in a big garden is quite unique. Lots of mediocre paintings, many statues of Venus and other objects. No climate control so dirty, deteriorating objects that are difficult to see in the dark rooms. A unique odd ball collection.

Worth wandering around. You are not allowed to take photographs in the grounds or in the palace, and there are none on sale. The equivelent of the European Grand Tour purchasing on view.

I found my way here, alone, following a recommendation. Despite the tourist blurb you can just turn up and go in, but the guides will try to take as much of a fee from you as you'll let them. sadly I was given a whistle stop tour of what is arguably an amazing treasure trove of a maharaja's art collection....
