The birth of Bangladesh is the result of nine grueling months of perseverance, resilience, suffering, sacrifices and bloodshed. Our glory was cemented by thousands of martyrs including freedom fighters, innocent men, women and children, and also the nation’s brightest minds. The liberation war museum was erected in honour of their sacrifices that eventually gained us our rights and freedom. Comprised of four galleries that symbolise our rights, sacrifices, struggle, heritage, friends, battles and the countless tales of bravery, the museum seeks to aspire younger generations to come.
The museum has in place photographs, artefacts, installations and various memorabilia, some of which will leave us with a heartache and tears in our eyes, while others will give us a sense of patriotism and truly proud to be a part of such a beautiful nation.

How much oppression can one possibly endure? Bangladesh chose to retaliated.
