Aside from dozens of vehicles, planes, etc. the museum has gone through lengths to show Malay history in military terms and the Malacca exhibit is especially well crafted. We have been in Malacca several times and this museum shows it condensed into a nutshell. Of further note is the brief outlines of rebellions and uprisings during British times and of... More

Spent a great 45 mins in the museum alone reliving moments from my high school history classes. Definitely worth a visit for history geeks to learn a thing or two. Might not be suitable for kids or people who have no interest in history but can still grab a picture or two with some of the monuments & weapons on... More

The museum has a vast collection of military-related exhibition items. The place to go to know Malaysia's history especially related to World War 2 and Communist insurgence. The items are well displayed either indoor and outdoor. Indoor area are air conditioned. Kids love to play around with the outdoor items. One unique attraction is an underground tunnel replicating Communist under-ground... More

Quite a well maintained museum. Good for family or educational visit and it's free admission. Parking space is limited and most of the plane and tanker is outside the building so suggest to go there early.

This is one of highlights in Port Dickson. It had displays from Infantry fighting vehicles to decommissioned helicopters. Though my boys 6 and 9 yrs old don't really understand the history but they enjoyed the displays and tunnel. What amazed me is the tunnel beneath the main building... A mock up underground tunnel... Oh ya, we had chance to see... More

Look out for the tunnel bit in the museum. Documents the history of the fight against communism. Plenty of exhibits as well, and very well maintained.
