Varendra Museum was the first museum to be established in East Bengal in 1910. The museum started out as the collection for Varendra Investigation Society and got its current name in 1919. The Varendra Research Museum building is the oldest museum in Bangladesh, containing priceless collections of sculptures, epigraphs, coins, manuscripts and rare books and periodicals. With limited scope and fund, the following project by Metropolitan Architects seeks to preserve the museum building of colonial era and the priceless collection inside.
