Went with my two kids. They found the exhibits fascinating but looks like the whole place could do with a complete revamp and updating. Some of the exhibits were falling apart.

The indoor exhibits covered topics ranging from ancient armies to the two World Wars. In fact, there was so much in the museum that we could only finish viewing the exhibits in two visits! The exhibits were described with... More

No entry fees. Old stream engine, tanks, trucks, jets...etc on display. Can improve on maintenance but then again its FOC. Worth while a visit as there little else to see in PD. Most of the exhibits are outdoors so it can get quite hot. Suggest to visit in the morning or late evening.

As one who comes from here , I'm definitely excited to see and learn about what happened in Port Dickson once. I also learned about the heroes who fought with every effort for the sake of our beloved homeland.
