I visited Victoria Memorial a few years back. There are many museums in my hometown. I don’t know all of them, but I can name a few. They are Indian museum, Victoria Memorial, Kolkata Museum etc.
I went there twice. When I was a kid I happened to even visit the place and a few years back for some research work.
Museums are useful for visitors because they tell a lot about the history of the town. It might not be important for everyone, but there is nothing wrong with knowing how a city evolved to the present age. When I was a kid, I used to be very curious about everything and anything. Thus I used to visit a lot of museums and historical monuments holding my parents’ hands. I used to get awestruck by the huge monuments and wonder how big they are. As I visited there twice, the second time was mostly on some research like I mentioned earlier. I gathered information about the great fights, the newspaper collections, tools used in ancient times, and everything.
What I liked the most about this place was the way they’ve preserved all the articles and newspapers. It was clean and well maintained. They maintained the discipline throughout. There was CCTV surveillance to check every corner. We were not allowed to touch anything, but we had to pay to take clips and photographs for the research. There were guides to show you the way through everything
