“Could become great with some heart!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

This place has great potential. It has really good war relics. Good stuff. BUT very poorly managed & taken care of. Admission is free though... so that's a plus point. BUT i wouldn't mind paying a small fee, so they could spend on the upkeep of the place. Nevertheless, if you're in the area, and like military stuff, check it out.

“A half hearted attempt”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

What could be an important monument to the struggles and sacrifices of the British, Commonwealth and Malaysian Armed Forces is a bit of a dissapointment. Many of the exhibits are not marked/labelled accurately or informatively. The outdoor exhibits appear to have been left in the hot sun for too long while the indoor exhibits are in dark rooms and any description is hard to read. And why oh why, in hot humid Port Dickson, can't the Ministry of Defence commemorate our history with air conditioning. Be ready for a lot of perspirationto the point one rushes thru the exhibits just to get out of the place. Pity.

“Guns and tanks and helicopters”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

The museum itself was not informative enough but the presence of these machines were enough to keep the children occupied for an hour or less.
Parking is a nightmare, by the way.

“A fun stop!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2011

Not a war fan but decided to stop at The Army Museum to let my 8-year old daughter look at some history of World War 2 and the remains of tanks, aircrafts, trains, helicopters, cannons and others...

Was quite fun actually telling kids about the War era and taking pics and also remembering those who fought in the war, fighting for the country.
