Liberation War Museum, Dhaka City

4.4
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.

  • There are exhibits about the stratum and flora and fauna of Bangladesh, but it is not the main exhibition. The main thing on the exhibition is about the War of Independence in Bangladesh. The exhibit shows how the Bangladeshi army fought and won against the Pakistani army. In the exhibition, there are photographs showing the militant attacks of the Pakistani army. It can be very grotesque, so it can be disturbing. Inside the exhibition, a newspaper article says that Japan helped bangladesh's independence by spreading it in the media.
