The imposing colonnaded cube of the former Town Hall Building is where Kolkata Panorama introduces the city’s heritage through a lively collection of working models and interactive exhibits. It’s well designed, though historically selective, and many foreigners will struggle to appreciate fully the detailed sections on Bengali popular culture. The accompanying guide makes it awkward to ‘escape’ quickly.
