In 2009, the Museum acquired just under an acre of land in Agargaon, Dhaka, to construct a full-fledged museum. A country-wide competition was floated and out of 70 entries for the architectural design, a jury board, some of whose members were overseas experts, selected a design which currently is being erected. The new building has been inaugurated by the Honourable Prime Minister of the country, Sheikh Hasina on April 16, 2017. The new building has the following features:
Although not classified as “green”, the building has some features like conservation of rainwater, water reuse, LED lamps, and solar cells supplying part of the energy requirements which demonstrates the Museum’s commitment to the environment and society in general.
