During the Bangladesh Liberation War the Bangladesh Forces, military component of the Mukti Bahini, were divided within the geographical area of Bangladesh into eleven sectors. Each had a sector commander who directed the military operation, which was carried out by several sub-sector commanders and their troops along with civilian resistance fighters.

Excellent museum - I learned a lot about the Liberation War and the exhibits made what I had read in my guide book more real. Items well displayed and described.

This is perhaps the best documented and explained story of events leading upto Bangladesh's independence. The museum is well laid out, very cheap entrance so all can visit and is quite expansive. My only negative comment is that there is less access for people who are disabled.

No finger-pointing or blame-shedding. Instead, a clearly chronicled look at everything that went wrong and right for this beautiful nation.

This is a hard hitting museum that lays the brutality of the 1971 struggle for independence bare for the visitor. Photos of corpses, exhumed bones, pictures of starving people - it's all here and it will leave you with an understanding of why there is so much anti-Pakistani feeling in Bangladesh even to this day.

We visited the museum but could not be satisfied. They should arrange multimedia presentation. They also should arrange experienced guide who can explain the incidents. We asked but that time there was no guide.
