“Great museum and free”
Review of Army Museum

Army Museum
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Very extensive museum where you can see all the uniforms from early malay kingdom though colonial, WWII and modern Malaysia, with all the weapons, small arms and ordinance like mine, grenades. There is also an big part on the WWII with japanese army exhibits.

Also a lot of armored vehicule, from the Bren carrier MK1 to mounted arty, and mobile radar, with an armored train too!!!
But also helicopters, jets and destroyed engines from the WWII.

you can also see reconstution of the different unit, with detailled history of the units and army in Malaysia.

But the best part was the reconstitution of communist underground camp, made from an actual one. you can see the hospital, dorms, communication rooms, weapons rooms. Its is dark inside and many babies were afraid to get down the tunnels, because the atmosphere is really well done.

One of the best army museum, I have visited, because it does not only display the uniforms and weapons (like army museum usually do) but they and reconstitutions of units with models in jungle or different situation with sounds too. Love the boat reconstitution displaying the invasion of malacca.

The museum staff did a great job and a must go if you like these kind of things.

Visited the museum with my buddies to take a glimpse at the show, insted we spent hours strolling across the room, examining the exhibits and taking pictures by them. The best part is the PKM Tunnel, Jambatan Gantung and the armored vehicles ...gonna visit there again to try the treehouse after I overcome my fear of heights.

To those whom wish to know about military contribution to Malaysia, this is the place to visit. They have planes, WWII relics, artillery guns, British era planes artifacts, a tunnel of Communist Party of Malaya. I did not manage to read the items from the 1941 - 1945 properly, they have rifles from the Japs. Did not locate the Arisaka!. Some bombs also on displayed. A strange stone found during WWII that marked as Japanese tunnel in Port Dickson and the rotary engines of the downed planes from WWII...
