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.

    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.
