Great displays of the military history of East Java from the mid-20th century. Pretty thin on anything after the mid-70s.

Too bad the museum was poorly managed. If they managed properly and preserved all things there, it would be wonderful and more interesting for the kids. Many information about army history there

Not worth any sort of taxi or traveling to this museum. Very little inside. There are more worthwhile things to do with your time in Malang.
