I went to this museum with a lof ot expectations and it turned out to be just another museum of the country. To some extent, I could not relate what it displayed and what we studied in the national history when we were school goers. There are food and beverages available for purchase in the ground floor. The place runs... More

It is located in Segun Baghicha , Dhaka. Memories of liberation war gathered there. This museum is the pride of Bengali nation.

If you need to know about the liberation histroy of Bangladesh, this is the place to visit. Your knowledge about the birth of this nation starts here. It's a must place for visit in Bangladesh.

I liked all the history accumulated in that building, as well as the film that they showed to us later on. As in other museuma that I visited in Dhaka, the lack of proper funding for conservation and display of artifacts is quite evident.

It is not a government funded project, rather a team of people gathered all the documents and items for the museum, in that sense it is a very well organized place, considering that it solely depends on public donation. I cried when I went there the first time, must see place.

Well worth a visit if you are interested in Bangladesh's recent history.It could have been housed better because at the moment all the memorabilia is in a dilapidated house that has been converted into a museum.The walk thru gives you an idea of how Bangladesh was born.The suffering,the genocides and the bravery of its heroes are all on display

It's a Memorial museum that tells the story of a touchy liberation war. A new traveller or foreigner who came to visit Bangladesh for a short while or long while, must visit this place to know the country and the brave people who fought for their motherland, specially to establish 'Bangla' as the mother tongue of Bangladesh through war that...
