It is considered as one of the best preserved monuments in Kolkata. Neoclassical in style, the famous mansion’s name is derived from its beautiful marble walls and floors. Here, visitors will come across a collection of art from Italy, England, Netherlands, and other European countries, as well as antique furniture. To learn more about the works of art and the mansion, Marble Palace is best visited with a tour guide. The palace also has a mini zoo, called the Marble Palace Zoo, which is a must-visit for those with kids.
