Military Museum
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.

  • This is an awesome place where people can know many things about liberation war of 1971. Just pay a visit here and furnish your knowledge of history. 😊
  • 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 newly built museum where you will get all possible sign and documents of war in 1971 between bangladesh and Pakistan. War documentary video can be seen arranged by authority .
  • 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.
