This museum is a monument to Bangladeshi independence and the war fought with Pakistan for freedom. The exterior is under major renovation and you have to slog through mud to get to it. But by all means get there. There are enough English explanatory boards so that you can truly understand the atrocities. The displays, photos, and videos are harrowing but provide true insight into the Bangladeshi struggles for nationhood.

One of the best historical museums I've seen anywhere. Absolutely world-class. The focus is of course the Liberation War of 1971, but the first section tells the history of Bangladesh beginning with ancient Bengal and going up through the British Raj to partition, etc. Fascinating exhibits, stories, and artifacts. Compelling and powerful. Nearly everything is presented in both Bengali and English. The building itself is new, spacious, clean, and well-maintained. There is also a space for temporary exhibits; when I visited recently they had an exhibit on Rohingya refugees from Myanmar. In summary, I would absolutely recommend the Liberation War Museum to anyone visiting Dhaka. Don't miss it.

First, check your map! The museum relocated to this new building a bit north of the Parliament in 2017. A couple maps I saw along with a road sign still showed it near the Independence/Glass tower. But definitely seek this place out! I learned quite a lot here. The galleries are well marked, and present a very good view of the history of Bangladesh and the struggles that ultimately led to independence. Some of the photos can be a bit graphic, but that is part of the story.
