Bangabandhu Memorial Museum is also called 'Bangabandhu Jadughor' in Bengali. The correct pronunciation of Bangabandhu is Bongo-bon-dhu. This place is a historical tribute to the funding father of the Peoples Republic of Bangladesh - Sheikh Mujibur Rahman - who was cruelly assassinated, together with almost every member of his family, in a brutal military coup. It was the private residence of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman before and after Bangladesh gained independence and was later converted into a museum. This is a place of great veneration and reverence for most patriotic Bangladeshis.
It is a very informative and interesting place with lots of pictures and historical artifacts. Most people take their children and their family to Bangabandhu Memorial Museum to learn the epic history of Bangladesh's creation.
