The Liberation War Museum is the place that reminds the memory of the Liberation War of Bangladesh. At present it is situated in the Agargaon area of the capital city Dhaka. It was first established in Segunbagicha in 1996. At that time it was located in the middle of the Shilpakala Academy and Press Club. But recently it has been shifted to Agargaon in its building.

In the museum, there are collections of various things from ancient civilization to the liberation of Bangladesh. The collections are displayed in four galleries in such a way that can remind people of the histories from ancient civilization to the liberation war.
