  • Showing the history of Hong Kong's maritime defences, is the ship's profit or the worst? The sea defense museum is located on the mountains of Hong Kong's sea, and it is worth a visit to the ancient times, the ancient platform, the tarmac, the trenches, the ancient ship's remains, the historical story, the story, and the worth of a visit.

  • The Hong Kong Maritime Defence Museum has a long history and showcases Hong Kong's weapons from the Period of British rule to the anti-Japanese period. However, the museum's exhibits have been the same for many years, without occasional exhibitions, and never want to go once.

  • An excellent museum in Hong Kong for those in search of its colonial past. The exhibits are highly informative and have great views across the harbour on a clear day! Avoid when rainy though, as many displays are also outdoors!
  • Museum was very well maintained and staffed. Exhibits were very clear in Chinese and English but there were little to no interactive activities. It's great for those that like to read and learn, for those complaining about a lack of things to play with, they're better off going to Disneyland. Some well preserved equipment from different eras, and best of all, it's peaceful and quiet and FREE.
