The 'museum' is a bit run down, but the space is so peaceful in such a crazy city that it is well worth the trip there. People were curious about us, but with a 'hello' we broke the ice.

Although relatively less spectacular as a Mughal monument, this incomplete fort is a must-see in Dhaka. The residential quarters of the governor, with the associated Museum is interesting too. They close over lunch on Friday afternoons.

If I know from where you want to go there I can answer you more precisely. My recommendation is taking the beribadh route.. This route is very polluted but it can take you there faster
