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

Did not expect it to be so huge and was pleasantly surprised. Lots of exhibits. Liked the video in one of the rooms talking about the history of how 25 Malay people were chosen. Kids loved the ship and found the room spooky.

I have been to Port Dickson so many times but I have never make it to this Army Museum. Finally I did recently and it was really a good experience. The fact that admission is free, still you can find it a valuable experience altogether. I would say that this Army Museum is divided into three main area that you... More

The Malaysian army has a long and rich history going back all the way to the days when a particular Agung insisted an army be formed. He faced much resistance. That makes for a very interesting story; which any professional museum designer would love to sink his teeth into. Unfortunately, this destination, as it stands now, does this glorious part... More
