Army Museum - Review
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.

Army Museum Trips
This is a great place to really get a close look at army equipment. There are tanks and armoured vehicles, planes and helicopters, you name it! There are even anti-air guns here. You are allowed to take as many pictures as you want and fiddle with the equipment on display. There are no tour guides around, but the entry is free. My only complaint would be the lack of information for many of the displays and the lack of cover from the sun as well. This is a great place to visit after a day at the beach.
You can witness a collection of the Malaysian army artifacts such as armoured cars, light infantry canons, old out of commission action weapons Be aware that it does not open it's doors on Mon & Tues. So the Wed - Thurs hours are from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. most of the artifacts on display is out in the open so to avoid the sun wear a cap or bring along a large umbrella. Ensure you have adequate drinking water to prevent dehydration. Also sun screen may help too.
I love this museum. 1. Free entrance fee 2. You can touch and climb on the things and take photos ( i admire alot) And alot more For me, it is the most amazing museum in Malaysia I have visited so far. Don't forget to take your umbrella with you
Recommended. The place is clean. The exhibit is full with information. Kids friendly.
Good places for the Malaysian citizens to learn about their motherland army's evolution over the years and background into the country's security system. For the rest, it is a place for one time visit, click pics with some real guns n missiles and probably post it in Instagram (currently addiction)😉
