The Liberation war museum (LWM) was established in 1996, to Honor the Bangladeshi people’s heroic struggle for democracy and national rights through the armed resistance against the Pakistan Army; after it had unleashed one of the worst genocides in history upon the people of then East Pakistan in the middle of night, 25 March 1971. The nine months long war led to the emergence of independent Bangladesh as a secular democratic state in December 1971. The museum bring to view the untold stories of courage and determination, victory and defiance, heroics and heartbreaks. It is run by a Board of Trustees with overwhelming support of all sections of people and is the outcome of citizen’s effort at all levels. It is now recognized-nationally and internationally, as a reliable and credible institution protecting the history of the emergence of Bangladesh.
Currently the Museum’s collection boasts about 14000 objects that include rare photograph, documents, media coverage and materials used by freedom fighters and martyrs of the Liberation War. In 1999, the museum, with the assistance of Bangladesh Army, excavated two killing fields in Dhaka suburb and these human remains of 1971 genocide added a more real dimension to the displays in the museum. Due to space constraints in the rented premises, the museum can exhibit about 1300 objects. A plan to build to proper museum on its own land is on the cards and the museum should be housed in its own premises by 2014.

Mymensingh Museum (ময়মনসিংহ জাদুঘর), formerly known as Momenshahi Museum (মোমেনশাহী জাদুঘর) is located at the bagan bari (garden house) of Zamindar Madan Babu at 17 Amrita (অমৃত) Babu Road, Mymensingh, Bangladesh. The museum, which began as an important regional institution for preservation of locally collected historical evidence, lacks proper preservation. Its objective is to preserve the rare and unique relics of local architecture, sculpture, metal works,utensils, handwritten scripts on paper and leaf, and commercial products. Collected from the palaces of Mymensingh District Zamindars, the museum's initial collection included 214 articles. They are housed in three rooms within the museum.
The museum was established in 1969 at the initiative of the-then Deputy Commissioner of Mymensingh. Initially run by the Mymensingh Municipality. The Department of Archaeology, Cultural Affairs Ministry took charge of the museum in 1989. By 1995, it was enlisted in the gazette. The collection includes manuscripts and coins, though many are not on display due to insufficient showcase space. A peacock mummy comes from Mymensingh Medical College. Bamboo and cane items, preserved birds, photographs and pottery were damaged during a renovation in 1999–2001.
Several articles were collected from Zamindar palaces. The Muktagacha zamindar palace contribution includes a stone flower vase, a compass, antique clocks, Bakharee (an ornament), pottery, weaving machines, ornamental flower tub stands, candle stands, iron shelves and sports items. Statuary and sculptures include those of Saraswati, Vishnu, and a dragon.
Natural history items include a tiger head, two deer heads, and the head of a wild bull. Elephant heads, a sofa set, Italian statues, and a huge shade used during hunting come from the Gouripur(গৌরীপুর) zamindar palace. A rhinoceros hide and a table with a marble stone top were acquired from the Atharabari (আঠারোবাড়ি) zamindar palace .The museum contains many paintings of rural Bengal.)  => Array ( [name] => Nilphamari Museum [post_id] => 6266 [post_link] => https://offroadbangladesh.com/places/nilphamari-museum/ [thumb_link] => https://offroadbangladesh.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/offroadbangladeshlogo2-300x178.png [post_content] =>

In Fultala Union, Khulna there is a Rabindra Memorial Complex built in memory of the Great Poet Rabindranath Tagore. It was the house of Rabindranath Tagore's in-laws, which was converted into a memorial complex after renovation.
At age 22, Rabindranath got married to a girl named "Vabatarini". Later she was introduced as Mrinalini Devi. It is assumed that the father of Mrinalini was involved in supervising the business of the Tagore family. Before his marriage, all of Rabindranaths kith and kin came to Pithavoge and stayed here. Then they went to Fulpur (Daksmindihi) to visit the bride. After that the marriage took placce at Kolkata.
Now the two storied building has been decorated and renovated after receiving a government fund and was turned into a museum and photo gallery. Some rare photos of Rabindranath Tagore is showcased here. Some important documents about Tagore's publications are also displayed here. A bust of Rabindranath Tagore is also there. Every year on 25-27 Baishakh (after the Bengali New Year Celebration), cultural programs are held here which lasts for three days.)  => Array ( [name] => Bangladesh Air Force Museum [post_id] => 10796 [post_link] => https://offroadbangladesh.com/places/air-force-museum/ [thumb_link] => https://offroadbangladesh.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/air-force-museum1-300x225.jpg [post_content] =>

People are already started enjoying the place.
