Thanq.
  • Much much rich collection now than the previous experience! Lots of digital displays are brought and the staffs are very cooperative. You will have sufficiently a good knowledge of overall Bangladeshi culture if you can manage to explore the whole museum thoroughly. Take atleast 4 hours in hand.
  • If you are willing to learn the history of Bangladesh and its culture is a short period of time, this is the place you should visit. It represents Bangladesh. There have been some significant changes made these days, the section representing our liberation war is amazing. Every parent should bring their children to this in Bangladesh to make the accustomed with the tradition and culture of Bangladesh.
  • Very organized. Good for passing time alone or with family. Has rich contents of different types. Will definitely recommend to a friend.
  • Good place to Visit & know about Bangladesh Culture & History. A four-storied building with a total exhibition area of more than 20,000 sqm. and 44 galleries.
