Visiting Military Museum: An Outstanding Study Tour with DIC students
Study tour, a break from routine classroom settings, injects enthusiasm and excitement
into the learning process. In fact, study tours can inspire students, reignite their passion for their
field of study, and motivate them to explore further. In order to fulfil this purpose, Daffodil
International College arranged a study tour at Bangabandhu Military Museum for its students’
On 27 May 2023, the students of class XI (session: 2022-23) along with their teachers
started for Bangabandhu Military Museum at 9.30 am. The museum is located at Bijoy Sarani,
Dhaka. It has a collection of Bangladesh’s military history, heritage, success stories and various
weapons and ammunition.
As the destination is not very far from college campus, we have decided to go on foot.
While crossing Manik Mia Avenue, the juvenile students had some snaps in front of the
Parliamentary Building. They were, really, excited and thrilled while marching towards the
destination. We reached the museum at 10.30 am and found that some of my fellow students had
already arrived at their most cherished destination.
After finishing the counting of the students, they entered the museum in a queue
maintaining discipline and rules of the institution. While exploring the museum, they observed
our heritage, success stories of our ancestors, wide implementation of Augmented Reality,
Interactive Displays, Virtual Reality, Holograms etc.
The museum is divided into six sections, including the Bangladesh History Gallery on the
ground floor, Bangladesh Army Gallery on the 2nd floor, Bangladesh Air Force gallery on the
3rd floor, UN Peacekeeping Gallery on the 4th floor, and Bangladesh Navy Gallery at the
There is also a separate museum named “Toshakhana Jadughor” within the museum
complex, where gifts and awards received by the country’s important personnel have been
showcased. A grand sculpture of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman has been placed in the
middle of the “Toshakhana Jadughor”.
Our students got amazed looking at the awesome architectural design and infrastructure
inside the museum. The study tour came to an end almost at 1.00 pm. At the end of the tour, they
experienced a heavy rainfall poured down the city which made the day more memorable for
them. Due to excessive rainfall, we had to wait some more time at the museum. This study tour
and the rainfall made the students refreshed by removing the monotony of academics.
Overall, it was an unforgettable outing of the teachers and the students which will remain
forever in the memory and keep us invigorated again and again.
Finally, I would like to say that this kind of study tour offers unique opportunities for
students to learn, grow, and develop both academically and personally. Moreover, it provides
practical experiences through gaining knowledge and foster various skills that are essential to
achieve success in the academic and professional spheres.
