  • National misium of bangladesh. Mostly famious for its collecion of old things
  • This is the place where you can spend lots of time. This museum is very large. You need at least 2 hours to visite full properly. Lots of local and international collection is here. Place is good enough. You need to buy ticket for entrance. For foreigners the ticket price is high. If you are in dhaka you must come here to move.
  • A good way to Saree into the soul of Bangladesh,the history,the culture and the arts. Very good atmosphere,superb collection of old books. Stuffs are quite friendly. The only problem is the absence of any kind of tour guide.
  • Bangladesh National Museum is The best museum. From this museum ,everyone can see the culture ,history of Bangladesh
  • The place where the history and tradition are preserved in one building. This place is very rich. Everybody in should visit at least one time of his/her lifetime to see Bangladesh at a glance.
