They've taken a minor building (there are, of course, no major sights in Dhaka) and dressed it up nicely with photos and other displays and interesting captions. Worth a visit. Excellent setting.

The building was restored after being abandoned for a long time. So many things there were not original. There are two buildings, the big one with the dome is opened to visitors while the left one, which was the inner court is the reserved area and is used as the office. The courtyard was full with garbage. They should have taken care of the place better than this.

The place is hard to find. The maintenance is poor. The museum is not maintained with due care. In the back side u can have a good look of river Buriganga with enormous foul odor. The garden inside should be taken care.

Its a great place to visit on weekends when the traffic is less. A good historical place. Would have loved it more if it was preserved properly.
