This is one of the best kept secret in Dhaka. Literally! The whole museum is underground. It is conveniently located at the city center, Shahbagh. The place is close to the National Museum, Historic Dhaka University campus etc. Plenty of activities for an entire day....More

Independence Museum us located right next to the independence monument. This museum focuses on the pre and post independence war elements. The museum is very well kept and reflects advanced architecture. I loved almost all the sections.
