About Army Museum, Port Dickson
The idea of establishing an Army museum was initiated in 1989. However, with the economic downfall and with the demand of Independence Memorial in Kuala Lumpur, the idea took a back seat. Later on, in 1999, the army began to take this idea seriously and realized that the establishment of a museum is necessary to preserve the struggling history of the Army base. Located near an Army base in Port Dickson, the Committee of the Association of the Army Museum was finally founded in 2000. It took nearly four years to complete the construction. Today, the museum houses two old army buildings, 9 galleries and a number of outdoor exhibitions. Visit the galleries where you get to see the history of the army dating back to the 16th century till the present time. Another remarkable gallery of the museum focuses on Japanese invasion, occupation and showcase interesting items belonging to that particular period.
In the outside region, you get to see steam locomotives, many military aircrafts, helicopters, armoured vehicles and numerous filled guns and artillery pieces.

Less parking space, but not so crowded on Saturday. It's more suitable for those foreigner or secondary school student to visit as a lot of historical wording written. It's a very clear guide of starting until the end of Malaysia history. It will mostly help secondary school student to increase their interested toward malaysia historical study. AS the story line were same as historical book.
Honestly it's free entry and you get to learn so many things !! I didn't expect for them to have so many historic weapons , vehicles and many more items .. all well kept. Children would love it. Such a wonderful place to bring them too. Yet the parking was a bit difficult as it was limit .. we went there on a public holiday.. I guess that's why.. well worth a trip to pay a visit
Free entry. Many historical stuff here. Good place to spend with kids over the weekend. Great place for teacher to bring students for learning history.
Great place to bring kids to learn history..the walk inside the tunnel is a must to revisit the PKM era.. Entrance is free.
It is very fascinating how Negeri Sembilan os called Army State. If you are into museums you should go
