This museum combined with preserved elements of the original battery and out buildings is a great showcase of the history of Hong Kong as well as the specific events that played out at the site in 1941. Two hours very well spent!

The Museum has free entry. Consult the Museum if you require a special tour; there are guides to give casual assistance if required. The Museum is well worth the visit.
