Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The marble palace lies in a corner which is desolate with narrow approach roads and vehicle inaccessible bylanes. Photography is not allowed which prevents popularisation. It is managed by unfriendly staff who give you an impression of being unwelcome. The upkeep is also poor which does not leave a good impression on ones mind. But inspite of these none too informidable drawbacks, the museum is packed with artefacts par excellence. There is wooden work, the highlight amongst which is a one piece statue of Victoria. There is marble, china, glass and brass in three roomfulls. The walls are adorned with reputed painters' works and india's own raja raviverma also finds a place.
It is urgently necessary for the ASI to take this over and convert it into a well maintained museum of international attraction and repute.

Worth a visit at least once. The museum, particularly the objects kept on the first floor are rare collection & speak volumes about the taste of Zamindars of ancient Kolkata. However, photography inside the property is not permitted. Otherwise the visit would have been more interesting.

this is the ancestral house of a prominent zamindar family. they have a collection of original paintings by some European renaissance masters which are really worth the view. the building itself is grand and indicates the grandeur of the past era! this is a much recommended place to visit when in Kolkata

A huge mansion, located on the northern fringes of Kolkata it was built by Raja Rajendra Mullick a wealthy Bengali merchant in the 19th century. The house was built in neoclassical style. The house has vast collection of western arts and also a private zoo. The entry is free though one needs permission to visit the place from West Bengal Tourism Information Bureau.

A large palatial mansion owned by a zamindar family. A part of it is open to public with a prior permission, though photography is not allowed. A huge collection of personal belongings of the family which include paintings, sculptures, furniture, carpets etc are displayed. Though the name of the place doesn’t do justice to what exactly it offers ! A must see place for awesome experience.

The place is situated in a Lane, where parking may be difficult. The privately owned and operated MUSEUM , full of LOVELY artefacts particularly marble statues of Greek God's and Goddesses. it's great to view and appreciate the collection. There is NO entry fee. But, the collection ( immensely valuable) needs to be well illuminated and preserved in clean surroundings. The security personnel there at gate and entrance to house needs to be improved a lot. The personnel employed are more interested in what ' bakhshish' they can get, rather than guide you across..so one should explore maximum by oneself. Definitely worth visiting.

Closed to public. Appears shabby and ill kept. Visibly lacks maintenance from the outside.
The two guards at the gate did not even allow us to take photographs of the mansion and gardens from the outside - Extremely ill-mannered.

Do not visit the place. Didn't even let us enter the palace when we said that we don't need a guide. The staffs would keep on following you in an unfriendly manner and keep on passing comments if you refuse to take a guide and it's nowhere written that it's compulsory to take one. It's a historic palace which is not at all maintained, Google would give you better pictures (as u aren't allowed to click) and explanation of the place (as the guides are their only to loot, as per information collected from my relative)

Definitely faded glory. But what glory in its time! Our hotel, the Taj Bengal, got us the necessary Tourist Office pass to get in. That was a great help. Entrance if free, but you'll be assigned a guide who will need to be tipped. Ours had only "functional" English. He could point out the interesting objects in the house tour, but couldn't really elaborate to follow up questions. No matter. Don't expect a "museum". It's more like a huge curio cabinet. The house is on a grand scale--but is far from grand now. The collection is amazing in scope but run down. Didn't matter. It was fascinating.

A good old palace with jice garden, a mini zoo, a treasure-trove of heritage and artefacts. Photography is prohibited inside. Closed on Mondays and Thursdays. Just carry and ID. No prior permission is required.
