The museum is housed in what used to be Lei Yue Mun Fort, which was built more than 100 years ago as the most formidable redoubt in the territory and which played an important role during the Battle of Hong Kong in 1941. Today, the fort has been revitalised to present the 600-year history of Hong Kong's coastal defences. We invite you most warmly to visit the museum and enjoy the relaxed environment as you learn about the artefacts and relics on display and gain an insight into this fascinating part of Hong Kong's history.
We are now temporarily closed for repair work due to the damages brought about by Tropical Cyclone Mangkhut until further notice. During the closure, our outreach programmes will be held as usual in order to continue providing quality service to the general public.
