The Bangabandhu Memorial Museum is a special museum located in the heart of Dhaka city, which has been established to preserve the memories of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, one of the greatest leaders of the Bengali nation and founding father of Bangladesh.

Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman lived in Dhaka's Dhanmondi residential area when he was the President of Bangladesh. On August 15, 1975, a group of rogue military officers killed him in the house along with all his family members found there, along with his 10 years old son Sheikh Russel. On August 14, 1994, the museum was set up in the building with the collection of some of his and his family's materials.

A poem in front of the gate of Bangabandhu Bhaban will be seen on the left wall written by renowned writer Annada Shankar Roy. The portrait of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman will be seen on the floor of this museum building. History has been highlighted in the first room of the museum. There are the photographs of Bangabandhu's conversation and exchange of greetings with governments and state heads of the different countries of the world. This room was the drawing room, where Bangabandhu held meetings with various foreign and domestic political dignitaries. The room next to this was the reading room of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. He used to sit here and write. From here he sent the Declaration of Independence in 1971.
