One of the best ranked museum in Port Dickson with historical exhibits of Royal Armed Forces, a subterranean tunnel, with army vehicles, plus a memorial fountain.
What to Expect?
The Army Museum Port Dickson is managed by Malaysian Royal Armed Forces. It houses the nation’s military achievements, memorabilia, uniforms and weapons throughout decades of history. This distinctive museum comprises nine galleries and a number of outdoor exhibits such as military aircrafts and helicopters, a selection of armoured vehicles, artillery pieces and many more. Some of the facilities include an audio-visual hall, a café and a souvenir shop.
In addition to the museum buildings, the spacious grounds also house decommissioned military vehicles, including planes, tanks and artillery guns, and a memorial fountain dedicated to soldiers who served through Malaysia's war history.
The aircrafts are definitely the highlights here, with plenty of posing opportunities for a good photo.
The museum is housed in two old army buildings and comprises 9 galleries and a number of outdoor exhibits.
The first part contains galleries which cover the military history of the Malay peninsula. The second part is all about military equipment with items like armoured cars and helicopters to explore. You can climb in some of them.
The military history exhibits cover information from the 16th century Melaka Sultanate, European arrivals, Japanese invasion and everything up until now.
There are nine galleries including a recreated tunnel of the the ones used by Communist guerrillas during the Malay Emergency. This is particularly well done and gives you some insights into how the Communist guerillas must have lived.
Visitors can make their way down to the war tunnels recreated based on the Japanese and communists historical tunnels. The tunnels lets visitors experience the tense atmosphere back in the war days, with relevant artifacts on display as well.
The infamous Japanese bicycle from the WW2 invasion is also on display here:
There is also a gallery on the modern army and its peacetime roles such as UN peacekeeping missions.
In the grounds of the museum are a steam locomotive, named Alor Gajah, various military aircraft and helicopters, a selection of armoured vehicles and a number of field guns and artillery pieces.
The Army Museum Port Dickson’s opening hours are from Wednesdays to Sundays from 10.00am until 5.00pm. Open daily from morning till evening, entry is free for all visitors.

Place is cool, almost got the equipment that retired. Well maintained? 50/50. Those under shelter are in sort of good shape but those not under shelter, with their hatches open all being exposed to rain and stuff.
Pt91m tank displayed under shelter when?
Also theres a replica Japanese Ha Go tank, dont really know where it came from but they should put some info about the tank instead of sitting there with nothing about it

It a learning walk.
With audio install in each vehicle, we can imagine how it works.
It's a public attraction and free.
2 hours should be ample for the tour.
Solemn respect to all our fallen warriors and salute to all retired and in service personel.

Good place to visit. Quite a huge place, need about 3 hours to finish up the tour. So many information we can gather here. Also got underground tunnel lead tu back yard garden. Suitable to bring kids but definitely this place busy during school holiday because of free entrance.
