Walk through the six galleries of Liberation War Museum, and learn about Bangladesh's past in order to understand its present. Inaugurated in 1996 and housed in a colonial-era building, the museum covers various struggles in Bangladesh's history through displays of military weapons, model buildings, portraits, and even human remains. It narrates the people's struggle to identify as a nation under the British regime, as well as the country's efforts toward democracy and political and economic freedom. The most in-depth coverage goes to the nine-month War of Liberation in 1971. Put Liberation War Museum into our Dhaka City vacation builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Dhaka City.

  • The liberation Museum, unique in its kind, recently moved to a new location. In the previous, near seaside, breathed the air of the country's history and the battles he has faced for their independence ... with a series of simple shrines which contained many important relics. Young boys/girls students accompanied the journey into history.

  • It was a beautiful place, full of mystery and wonder. It also holds up honor and heritage. It shows everybody the hard and painful life we had to go through. It also makes us proud of our motherland and country
  • After having been stuck in the traffic for 2 hours, I arrived at the museum only to find out it was closed for an unknown reason. Another attempt. I got there exactly at 5, and was not even allowed to take a glimpse even when I was willing to buy a ticket. The guards were probably the most unfriendly people you will ever come across in the country. For a museum so important to Bangladeshi history, it is a complete fail.
  • This is a must visit for anyone who likes to know Bangladesh. It's a private collection of a large number of exhibits, all donated by the public. It's a bit crammed but they are moving to a new building soon with larger space. Highly recommended.
