Did a tour of the Army Museum & took lots of photos with the decommisioned artilleries, army vehicles & even a fighter jet installed at the compound of the museum. An educational visit to understand the important role of our Army in national security.

We visited the museum as our last stop on a quick weekend trip to Port Dickson from KL. It was a 20 minute walk here from the Avillion Resort, or a taxi will only be 8-10 ringgitt. The museum is comprised of an open air static display of vehicles and aircraft and there are two double storey buildings housing exhibits... More

We were here by October 2014. This is my first time visited to Army Museum in Malaysia. There are outdoor and indoor exhibition. The different hall display different era of weapons really impressed me. Moreover the enter is free, really worth to go. We spent around 2 hours, really an enjoyable trip.

Not bad place for exploring and some history may review there. A tunnel was under the surroundings and it is worth for exploration and the only tunnel for visitors that is nearer for southern visitors.

Pros: It's free admissions but they do ask for donation for keeping the museum in place. Can learn lots of historical things & backgrounds. Clean. Cons: They should make it more upbeat by providing more live story telling. No live performances due to free admissions, I guess. If only some of the on duty army can be kind enough to... More

Am interesting, educational two to three hour visit. The Communist Party Malaysia Tunnel was an eye-opener. The museum displays and written accounts on the British, Japanese, Portuguese and Dutch in Malaysia were enlightening; and too, the information on the Malaysian army. A recommended pop-in when in Port Dickson.

When i arrived, one army came out with a sleepy face and still have plenty of water on his face. Inside the museum very dark, and no air-con at all! I guess it can be replaced as a haunted house. Disappointed...
