Our liberation did not come so easily, it took around 3 million lives and sufferings of many more..! Liberation War Museum managed by a well respected trustee board.. who managed to accommodate it in such a small 2 storied building. However, you will get to know how costly was our independence for us. Valuable documents, arms, ammunitions, remains of human... More

It was inaugurated on 22 March 1996 at 5 Segun Bagicha, Dhaka in a two-storied old-sty1e building. There is an eternal flame at the entrance. The museum has six galleries the first of which... More

Large exhibition with lots of detail, many exhibits with English explanations, a great deal of information which you will not have seen or even have known about.

Lots of original materials, documents and artefacts help take you back to the 70's. As one should expect it's slightly tatty but that adds to the charm. Some of the narrative and materials could be presented or explained better. Overall, an important slice if the desh!

While the layout and venue of the museum are not perfect, it does a nice job of chronologically narrating the birth of Bangladesh, with focus on the atrocities committed by Pakistan during the 1971 genocide. There are many shocking pictures and exhibits that reminded me of similar museums in Vietnam and Cambodia. Interesting that this tragedy - which claimed 300,000... More

This museum is about the 1971 liberation war of Bangladesh, also known in India as the 1971 Indo-Pak war. Some really moving details and pictures of the horrid times face by the Bangla population under the oppressive Pak rule. Some eye opening accounts with historical news papers. The recognition of India's contribution in liberation of Bangladesh.

The admission price was a doddle. Leaflets about the place difficult to find and buy. One gets confused as lot of the exhibts show HINDU heritage but very little of majority muslim heritage. It was the week when BOOK MELA was on. There was NOT a sinle book on display by any Muslim Author in the museum. I had to... More

I'm not a fan of museums. And this does not convince me otherwise. Although the original exhibits, but in very poor condition and unkempt. Enticement in the form of exhumed skeletal remains are very exaggerated. Worth a visit if you really have nothing else to entertain.

This is the place where you'll get to know about the Liberation War of Bangladesh against Pakistan in 1971. You get to see documentaries as well as artifacts from the war period. The things are very much arranged in a chronological order and the staff are really helpful in explaining the things. It is one of the few places where... More

Mostly a rundown collection of artifacts and natural history, some improvements seem to be on going so section were empty. The liberation rooms were interesting and showed quite a collection of documentation and photographs. Needs a complete over haul to become a real National level museum. Like the rest of the country , there seems to be large dearth of... More
