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... read more

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.

The admission price was a doddle. Leaflets about the place difficult to find and buy. One gets confused as lot of the exhibts show HINDU heritage but very little of majority muslim heritage. It was the week when BOOK MELA was on. There was NOT a sinle book on display by any Muslim Author in the museum. I had to... More

I'm not a fan of museums. And this does not convince me otherwise. Although the original exhibits, but in very poor condition and unkempt. Enticement in the form of exhumed skeletal remains are very exaggerated. Worth a visit if you really have nothing else to entertain.

This is the place where you'll get to know about the Liberation War of Bangladesh against Pakistan in 1971. You get to see documentaries as well as artifacts from the war period. The things are very much arranged in a chronological order and the staff are really helpful in explaining the things. It is one of the few places where... More

Mostly a rundown collection of artifacts and natural history, some improvements seem to be on going so section were empty. The liberation rooms were interesting and showed quite a collection of documentation and photographs. Needs a complete over haul to become a real National level museum. Like the rest of the country , there seems to be large dearth of... More

I was reading a book about the war called 'A Golden Age' and this really sparked my interest in the museum. However, if I hadn't been reading this novel I am not so sure the museum would have captured my imagination. On the whole not a bad experience but I did go very quickly as the museum is quite small.... More

Small museum, with a lot of photographs about the freedom struggle. Some skulls and bones and some uniforms also form part of the display. A story of a race from its cultural roots to liberty. Worth a visit if you are in Dhaka. When you leave this place, you will be thankful to God that you had been born in... More

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.
