Bagerhat Museum is located on the southeastern corner of Shat Gambuj Masjid (60 dome mosque) in Bagerhat. It was built in 1995 to preserve the memory of Khan Jahan Ali and the Muslim culture of the area. 

The museum has been designed to show the artifacts collected from Bagerhat region. During the reign of the Bengal ruler Nasiruddin Mahmud Shah (1442-1459), Khan Jahan Ali developed this region. Khan Jahan Ali probably brought Islam in this region. He then named the area as Khalifat-i-Avad. He constructed many roads, marketplaces, mosques and tanks for the welfare of the people. It is heard that this great man started to dig 360 lakes in 360 mosques in the entire area starting from Jessore's Baro Bazar.

In order to preserve the memory of Khan Jahan Ali, the Museum was built with the help of UNESCO’s fund in 1995. This south-walled museum building has three galleries where various relics of Islamic culture and many plaques of ancient times are displayed. It is worth visiting this museum to understand the history of Islam and the contribution of Khan Jahan Ali to spread Islam in this region. Visitors of Sat Gambuj Masjid also visit this museum as both are located in the same compound.

There is a Ticket counter at the entrance of the museum. Everyone needs to buy an entry ticket except for the children under 5.
