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

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.
