The Coastal Defence museum is located in the formal coastal defence fort of Lei Yue Mun, near Shau Kei Wan on Hong Kong Island. The fort was built by the British in 1887 to defend the eastern approaches to Victoria Harbour. The museum tells the story of the defence of the Hong Kong coastline from the time of the Ming Dynasty, through the First and Second Opium Wars and the Battle of Hong Kong, to the present day. It was the site of an important battlefield in 1941, during the Battle of Hong Kong.
The Museum consists of two main areas, the Redoubt and the Historical Trail. Built in 1887, the Redoubt was, at that time, regarded as one of the largest fortifications of the British forces. Following restoration it now houses many permanent and temporary exhibitions in a series of galleries. Much of the fort itself has been refurbished in recent years and by following the Historical Trail it is now possible to enter many parts of the fortifications including the North and West Caponiers, and the Redoubt Ditch. Exhibits also include a 6-inch Disappearing Gun, a 64-pounder Mark III Gun and a Torpedo Station with a replica torpedo. There is also a small Military Vehicle Display Area.
