  • I love this place. Because we can get more historical knowledge about our Bangladesh culture and civilization ... So if you want to know about Bangladesh culture, then you should visit this national museum.......
  • Bangladesh national museum at the centre of pride and heritage of Bangladesh. Bangladesh has been a place of historical importance for many years. All we know about the matter that a museum conserves and exhibit the tradition, customs and heritage of a country. When entering a museum, you can learn important concepts that derived from history, tradition, customs, persons, art, cultures and so on. There are a lot of historical and art museum and galleries in Dhaka. I’d like to tell about the Bangladesh National Museum, the largest and well known museums in the country as well as in the south Asia. It was founded in 1913 by the British Governor of Bengal. Now it is a four storey building with 46 galleries; have an extensive collection of artifacts. Bangladesh National Museum is the home of a countless number of rare and priceless artifacts. Bangladesh can be feeling proud to have such a preserver of artifacts.Bangladesh National Museum was merely a center point where the selected artifacts from around the country had been gathered by the authorities. But that time is now over. The Museum authority has done many significant roles including preservation. Over 57000 local and foreign visitors visit this spectacular museum every year!
