  • A visit to the Museum of the liberation war for independence of Bangladesh is a must to understand certain aspects of the country. Some exhibits are impressive and interesting history because little known in our country. Does reflect on the absolute inability politics with which was conducted the decolonisation of the subcontinent creating causes of many local conflicts.

  • You will feel the vibe. Too small place. Actually They are shifting the museum to new, spacious place very soon.
  • its one of the most amazing place i have ever visited. They recently have moved to a new location. This place provides the history of Bangladesh, the sacrifice that the people of this great nation made
  • It is a place where most of our history of liberation war are kept.Everyone can visit this place. Usually, many cultural programs are held in this place to make a view of the liberation war. It's really a good place to know better about the war.
  • The memories of our liberation war are presented here very nicely. It is better not to bring your young kids (age below 12-13) here as some brutal pictures from the war time are displayed here. But u must bring your child here when they have grown up. They can get a very clear picture of the war times.

Where to stay in Dhaka City

Hotels in Dhaka are among the world's most affordable, but due to a lack of tourist infrastructure you should plan ahead to avoid misunderstanding. Most of the upmarket hotels group in the downtown area, while budget hotels cluster in Old Dhaka. There is a wide range of room or apartment rentals and guesthouses, though some areas impose restrictions for renting out to foreigners. If staying long-term, explore options in Gulshan and Banani, north of town.
