Travel Diaries: Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence

In search of something worthwhile for the weekend, I headed off to the Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence  last Sunday.

If you live somewhere in the Island Line, this place is definitely worth visiting especially if you like military history. Ever since that trip to Cambodia and Vietnam, I have taken a rather very late liking to history.

Mix in the male influences in my life like my father who knows the different rank insignias;  older cousins who dominated the tv  to watch NAM Tour of Duty and friends who know their war history… I am really fascinated with these stuff that a handful of female species can actually appreciate.


Take the Island Line (blue line) and alight at Shau Kei Wan MTR station and head to exit B2. It’s about some 15 minutes walk from the station and you’re not likely to get lost because there are signs every few meters or so.

Admission fee is just HK$10 and the souvenir shop doesn’t have much choices but is manned by a very amiable old fellow; you’d want to buy more just because he is very engaging.

Museum is open from 10AM to 5PM

Open from Monday to Wednesday; Friday to Sunday 

Entrance is free on Wednesdays!
