“Old memories”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2012

This is of particular interest to veterans of the Malayan Emergency and Confrontion 1964-66 although this latter period could have been more complete.

“Worth visiting...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2012

This a " must visit place" when at Port Dickson as the collection and information are adequate. Very educational especially for school children. Most important, its FREE Entrance!!

“Could become great with some heart!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 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 bubbles 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.
