The Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence is a museum in Hong Kong, located in a former coastal defence fort overlooking the Lei Yue Mun channel, near Shau Kei Wan on Hong Kong Island.Exhibitions in the old redoubt cover Hong Kong's coastal defence over six centuries. There's a historical trail through the gun fortifications, tunnels and observation posts almost down to the coast.
The museum now holds a fascinating permanent exhibition entitled '600 Years of Coastal Defence'; an intriguing collection of military memorabilia covering the past 600 years of Hong Kong's military history. It includes exhibits and relics from the Ming period right up to the present. Several of the museum's 11 galleries are devoted to the first Opium War, the colonial period, the Battle of Hong Kong (WWII), the Japanese occupation, and the post-handover Hong Kong Garrison of the People's Liberation Army. The upper part of the Redoubt is dedicated to thematic exhibitions such as the Coastal Defence Weapons Theatre and the Cost of War.
