Converted from the old Lyemun Fort, the Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence is the city's only military museum. It locates on a headland overlooking Lyemun Pass. The Museum reopens to the public after a major revamp. Multimedia elements, innovative presentation methods and a thematic approach are injected in the revamped permanent exhibition and the historical trail of the museum to narrate the unique story of Hong Kong's coastal defense.
The Story of Hong Kong Coastal Defence
The permanent exhibition, housed in the Lyemun Redoubt on the hilltop, is made up of 11 thematic galleries converted from casemates to showcase the changes in Hong Kong's coastal defence and military affairs since the Tang Dynasty, as well as the history of Hong Kong's resistance against Japanese aggression.
