Museum of Coastal Defence Undergoes a Revamp

The Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence, converted from the Lyemun Fort built in 1887, was opened to the public in 2000. In anticipation of its 20th anniversary, the museum is currently undergoing a major revamp, and our colleagues at the museum are working closely with various parties, including an experienced design consultant on a revamp of the permanent exhibition, the historical trail and other facilities. We hope to inject new elements into the future permanent exhibition and the historical trail through innovative presentation methods in order to enhance visitors' insights into and interest in the exhibition themes, while the restaurant, theatre, lobby and other facilities in the museum will also be renovated to give visitors a brand-new experience.
