Gallery 3: The Qing Period (1644-1911)

This gallery, formerly a casemate for soldiers, is used for introducing the history of coastal defence in the Guangdong region during the Qing dynasty. Coastal defence armaments and garrisons as well as the problem of piracy in early Hong Kong are also discussed. The partial gun barrel found in Chek Lap Kok is displayed. Other exhibits include Nian Army soldierˇ¦s jacket of the Qing dynasty, letters from Qiying to Governor John Davis regarding the problem of opium and piracy in Hong Kong, and archaeological finds from the Tung Lung Fort. Supplemented by vivid graphic panels, the forts and batteries built in Hong Kong during the Qing period are introduced.
