From the Director's Desk

The mission of the Chittagong University Museum is to collect, preserve, study, exhibit, and stimulate appreciation for and advance knowledge of works of art that collectively represent the broadest spectrum of human achievement at the highest level of quality, all in the service of the public and in accordance with the highest professional standards. The purpose can also depend on one’s point of view.

This brochure published for commemorating the 42th anniversary of the Chittagong University Museum, an ever-increasing interest to know about the origin, growth and development of the museum of the country prompted us to the text and photos with an updated account till 2014.

Awareness of the museum’s role as an effective source of visual education and aesthetic pleasure in society is, hopefully, dawning gradually in the public mind. The museum aims to be a bridge between the university and the public. We always try to makes special arrangement to speculate about the role of museums in society.

The museum is now quite well organized and you will see there are hundreds of visitors like you every day, soaking in the history and heritage.
Through the publication of this brochure of the Chittagong University Museum brings its whole picture to a greater audience. We are pleased to offer the output as a source for our present generations and who, we hope, will be inspired by this findings and be motivated to work for future progress.
