So here we go continue covering all the museums of Hong Kong! And this is the
Museum of Coastal Defence!
How to get there/information:
Parking available at the entrance of the museum, but space is very very limited…
we were able to a spot and I guess its because we arrived there at 3pm…while only 2 hours left before the
This is such a beautiful place by the coast line of Sau Kei Wan,
the East side of Hong Kong Island.
The place was originally a fort during the world war,
it was once a very important battlefield in the 1940s.
Cant actually believe that these heavy duty tanks was once working for HK…
covering materials of from the 600-year history of coastal defense, the place could
easily spend you half a day with the cost of HK$10 admission!
Ever wonder the history of the Murray House in Stanley?
here you can get the answer!
Theres a lot more to see than my pictures can tell
My Personal favorite/recommended/must see goes to the temporary exhibit:
“Escape from Hong Kong: The Road to Waichow”
“On Christmas Day 1941, within hours of Hong Kong’s surrender to the Japanese,
a group of 68 British and Chinese officers and men made a daring night-time escape by sea,
breaking through the enemy’s encirclement and landing on the coast of mainland China…”
The exhibits goes on to show where the escape and how they travelled;
who helped them on their way; and how they eventually reached safety.
The temp exhibits ends March 2013 so don’t miss it out!
