  • It depicts the sacrifices and valour of Indian soldiers during the war. The audio-visual show is good and the serene and calm environment is worth visiting once.

The museum tells a story of the bravery of 1971 war. It was a great experience to be here and know what happened this night when Pakistani army tried to enter inside India.must recommend.
