This isn't like a normal museum as it is mainly propaganda - the victor writes history, and this is a good example. Having said that I found the personal mementos very interesting and got a good insight in what the Bangalis experienced whilst fighting for their independence. Well worth the visit.

Visited this with my friends and it helped me see the liberation movement of Bangladesh in a very organized and precise manner. Must visit for people who want to understand all that went into creation of Bangaldesh. If you are visiting Dhaka, don't miss this.
