As a Bangladeshi, the Liberation War Museum is a must-visit place. Not only does it have memorabilia from the war, but it also houses some of the most messed up things I've ever seen in my life. You'll find blood-stained clothes of freedom fighters. There're the clothes of a five-month-old baby stomped to death by the Pakistani Army. Most terrifying... More

Worth taking a look around, the museum travels the road to independence and international recognition. Harrowing at times and also the story of how a small country suffers the whims of world players. Somewhat dated exhibits and descriptions, but worthwhile.

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.

One of those informative museums to quickly learn about the history of this young nation and it does offer you a quick recount of what happened. Of course, since this is in Bangladesh, the information presented are from a Bangladeshi point of view - great to read about history based
