Since me and husband had no plan on this Sunday afternoon, we decided to visit this museum near Shaukeiwan. Normally I m not a museum lover, but I found this one interesting. It displays history of Hk from Ming Dynasty to 20 th century. The landscape of the museum is interesting which was a fort built by the British. They have 11 rooms regarding the coastal defense in Hk from Ming Dynasty till 20 th century. Each room have different theme. Even I m not a military lover I don't found it boring. I don't agree with some writers below stated that the museum is political bias. I have studied history of opium war and Japanese invasion while at school. Truely speaking, both opium trade and invasion could not be judged as beneficial to people. On the other hand, in the museum there are also information regarding British, Canadian and Chinese defended HK. There are also memorial for the British, Canadian, Chinese soldiers died for defending HK. For British and Canadian wants to know their old soldiers in Hk, here you go. I also found some young Japanese couples visit here, it was good that they are open-minded to know more information about WWII. The museum also displays historical relic and many cannons and children corner. I agree that some writers said better take 2-3 hours to complete the tour. Take a lift up and walk down the trial. Also can see the nice views of Lei Yue Mun. We don't have time to complete the tour today. For only hkd 10, definitely will go again.
A tip: the cafe was temperory closed when I visited.
