Shilpacharya Zainul Abedin Museum is a centre for collection and preservation of Zainul Abedin's art. As per government order for a nation-wide preservation of the artist's paintings and works, the museum was established in 1975. The site selected was at the north end of Mymensingh, the hometown of Shilpacharya Zainul Abedin, by the nature surrounded shadowy banks of the old Brahmaputra. The concept of an archive was first conceptualised by the Shilpacharya who, in mid nineteen fifties, spearheaded the movement of collecting neglected pieces of invaluable works of art scattered all over rural Bangladesh. The art centre started on 7 July 1975 in a colonial building owned by a Mr Barden who later sold it to nalini ranjan sarkar, a member of the Viceroy's executive council.

The ethnological museum has at this moment 11 galleries to exhibit the various aspects of lifestyle of the 29 ethnic groups of the country, including twelve ethnic groups of Chittagong hill tracts. The exhibits represent all aspects of life and activities of the ethnic groups. The exhibits have been made lively and attractive by means of maps and photographs, models, wall paintings and by artificially creating the environment in which the tribes live.

Zia Memorial Museum : The Chittagong Circuit House built in 1913 atop a hillock was transformed into Zia Memorial Museum in memory of late President Ziaur Rahman who was martyred here by a few misled army personnel at dead of night on 30th May 1980.

The place has developed into a full-fledged museum by September 1993 with a well-equipped conference room, a library and as many as 12 galleries. A total of 743 exhibits that include 336 souvenirs and 13 documents are laid out across the galleries. The radio transmitter, the microphone, the chair and the table which were used by Shahid President Ziaur Rahman when reading the Declaration of Independence in 1971 are displayed in galleries 1 and 2. His personal effects and belongings are exhibited in galleries 3, 4 and 5. In galleries 4 & 7 are put up portraits of the martyred President and the gift items that were presented to him by different Heads of states and diplomats. Gallery 12 contains a reconstruction of the event of this martyrdom

Jail authority to set up museum

The prisons authority will set up a museum displaying items of historic interests to give visitors few glimpses of various milestones in nearly 220 years’ history of jail in this land.

The display will range from turbans used by the jail wardens in the past to their modern uniform, from the rope used in hanging veteran anti-British rebel Masterda Surya Sen to the one for militant kingpins Shaikh Abdur Rahman and Siddiqul Islam Bangla Bhai.

Major Shamsul Haider Siddiqui, deputy inspector general of prisons, told New Age that the decision to set up the museum has been taken to allow people know about jail and preserve its history for the next generation.

‘Initially it will be set up at a place just outside the Dhaka Central Jail so that the common people can visit it easily and learn about the jail,’ he said, adding, the people can also know that the jail is turned into correction centre now from a punishment place of the past.

The museum will be opened in the early 2008 in Dhaka and gradually it will be expanded to other places, he said.

All the materials of the old jail and its present structures will be kept in the museum.

The jail was first established in the country in 1788 when the jail guards used to wear khaki half sleeves and half pant along with turban on head, holding a spear in hand.

After the liberation, the wardens used khaki full sleeves, full trousers, iron helmet and remained on guard with a 303 rifle in hand but now their uniform changed to deep green full sleeves, full trousers and hat on head since 2006.

All the male and female guards wear the same uniform.

In the past, the prisoners, who were sentenced to rigorous imprisonment, were usually engaged in produce mastered oil by pulling oil-press, known as ghani.

And such one was found in the Jamalpur jail and it will be brought to Dhaka for keeping it in the museum, said the DIG prisons.

The room where four national leaders, Tajuddin Ahmed, Syed Nazrul Islam, AHM Kamruzzaman and Captain M Monsur Ali, were killed in 1975 has been preserved in the Dhaka Central Jail since the Awami League government came in power in 1996.

The place where Masterda Surya Sen was hanged was also preserved at Chittagong Central Jail and the rope which was used in hanging him has been brought to Dhaka for display in the museum, he said.

Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was detained in the jail for several times and the goods and utensils including the cage for birds he used during his stay in the jail will be collected for display in the museum, Shamsul Haider Siddiquee, said.

‘We also talked to the VIP prisoners like Sheikh Hasina and Khaleda Zia about displaying their usable items in the museum’, he said.
