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.

  • Vary Nice Place to Spend Your Free time and you can increasing your Knowledge. Here you can see many Papers from 19971 and many used things of many popular freedom fighters. Over all Good.
  • On 1996, some visionary and social activist took a magnificent decision to build a museum based on War, as local collaborators were always active to erase the history. Founders kept the museum always "Private" to ensure if government tries to destroy the organization, will not be succeed.
  • 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.
  • it is really a historic place and there are a lot of important staffs about our great liberation war...
