  • Bangladesh National Museum is a place where the heart gets filled with joy. The collection of the museum is so rich. And it's location one of the best because you can easily travel to this place from wherever you are in Dhaka city.
  • The museum is well organized and displays have been housed chronologically in several departments like department of ethnography and decorative art, department of history and classical art, department of natural history, and department of contemporary and world civilization. The museum also has a rich conservation laboratory.
  • The environment of the museum room not good, specially in the side of Sundarban jungle and musical instruments room. Most of the AC machines switch off. By the way, this is very good and knowledgeable place but need to improve the internal environment.
  • The national museum of Bangladesh The place is quite big It's consist of the great history of Bangladesh and it's natural habitat The service provided by the museum isn't much good
  • It is a reminder of our national history. It is full of mystery, and teaches us many things. I had gone there when I was 5, and still remember it. I will always remember it. Who could forget that magical place?
