Excellent displays with information in both Bengali and English, the museum really gave us an great introduction to this period of Bangladesh's history. Some of the information and photographs are fairly graphic so probably not suitable for younger children. One of the few attractions which doesn't have a dual pricing policy, entrance is just Tk5. No photos inside the museum... More

It's an excellent historic pictorial documentation of the history of Bangladesh. A must see for all who live in or visit Bangladesh. The sacrifices of millions not only during the War of Liberation, but from time immemorial is humbling. There are also mementoes to see. There is a shop which sells books etc. the weekly closing day must be publicised.... More

It tells the story of the coming into being of Bangladesh with stories and graphic pictures of some of the patriots who lost their lives in the struggle. It makes but does not labor the point of the West's lack of support as genocide was waged on the people.

The museum has taken a long time to get established and it's creation can only be credited to a few dedicated individuals. To actually have all these items in the museum is a miracle in itself due to the policies taken by Pakistan to ruin anything to do with any form of Independence. Also given their limited resources, the installation... More

If you are in Dhaka, you must visit this place. Its a very small museum and the ticket price is like peanut. But the collection of this museum is unbelievable. You can see the 9 months of liberation war that Bangladeshi people had to go through in 1971. Without visiting this museum you won't realize what price Bangladeshi people had... More

The museum provides a thorough and detailed look at the Liberation War of 1971. Where artifacts are not available, newspaper articles have been used to great effect. All aspects of the war are featured, including the uncomfortable truths which need to be said. There is also a good giftshop that stock many books, including many books in English. The current...

Visited here as part of a wider tour of the area. I knew a little bit about the war in Bangladesh, but this museum really did teach me a lot more. A lot of the images and information (in both English and Bangla) is really humbling, and puts things into perspective. The volume of both primary and secondary material is... More

I was unaware of the War between Bangladesh and Pakistan, so this museum was very interesting to see and gave a better understanding of modern day Bangladesh.

Liberation War Museum is the symbol of freedom of Bangladesh. now it is at a temporary rent house, but the permanent building is under construction. after finishing the work, it will be a nice place to visit. now you can visit the temporary building and have some idea about our liberation war.
