They have Best military displays, interesting underground tunnel and fun canopy walkway. And amazingly the admission is FREE. It is a great honor to find my uncle's name on the Tugu Peringatan. He martyred in Ulu Legong attack. In short, please add more insteresting displays, MINDEF is doing a great job with this museum. Keep it up.

Its free, but a little bit hot to walk around. Kids would love the place. Good photos with aircraft, choppers, tanks and trains. Quite a simple museum.

It traces the army history along with Malaysia's freedom fighters from its colonial days While you are there, do check out the tunnel behind the refreshment centre, it used to actively serve during the Emergency years! The tunnel is currently closed to public but public could still see the mouth of the tunnel through its black bars.

It was Sunday when we came to the museum. What attracted us a lot was the arrangement of army vehicles at the museum; trains, jet fighter, tankers, cannons and whatsoever means of transports and shooting machines. There were several old building that were actually renovated and be filled with galore of information. If you follow the actual sequence of building... More

A vast improvement from what it was before. Very informative. The little ones would enjoy taking pictures whilst the older ones could learn a thing or two. Would have been way better if the electronics were working. More parking lots needed to cope with the crowd.

We just spent about 40 minutes here as we're unsure of the closing time. Managed to visit the first block about history of the army. We also went through the underground tunnel which documented the history of the communist movement and the various treaties signed. It got a little bit claustrophobic after a while going thru the tunnel. Interesting, nonetheless.... More

We visited the museum and found it to provide an excellent insight into Malaysian military history from a Malaysian perspective which I found very interesting. While I was disappointed that some of the interactive exhibits were not working, I still think the museum is a great achievement. I enjoyed the tunnel network from the Communist insurgency era and the insight... More
