The museum is well kept and well curated if a little cramped. The best place to garner an understanding of the history of the nation, beginning from Bengal's contribution to the Indian independence movement right down to the birth of Bangladesh. The latter part can be disturbing to say the least. they also have a small bookshop.

To understand a bit more of Bangladesh and its history, this is a must see. It can be heart breaking, depressing and a bit one sided, but this is definitely a must see! Impressive!

This Museum tells the story about an important time in Bangladeshi history. As an American we have not heard much about what happened to Bangladesh in the 70's and the heroes the emerged. Worth the visit.
