Marking the third anniversary of the implementation of the Hong Kong National Security Law (NSL), the Security Bureau (SB) launched the updated version of the NSL online virtual exhibition with the Hong Kong Palace Museum (HKPM) as its virtual background, bringing a new touring experience to visitors.To enhance the understanding of members of the public regarding the legislative background, importance and significance of the NSL, the SB first launched the NSL online virtual exhibition in July 2021, which has registered more than 440 000 visits thus far. The online virtual exhibition of the third anniversary of the promulgation of the NSL is inspired by the HKPM, with new virtual backgrounds embellished with Chinese cultural components in a Chinese-style layout. The various zones of the exhibition provide rich information on the NSL to members of the public, covering the importance of the NSL, the legal regime, enforcement mechanisms, major provisions and effectiveness, the work of the disciplined forces in safeguarding national security, reference materials as well as the winning entries of the "Let's Join Hands in Safeguarding National Security" Programme. The updated version of the exhibition is especially housed in virtual exhibition halls on different floors, unlike the previous version where it was all shown in one large exhibition hall. Visitors can simulate taking the escalators to navigate different floors, or visiting the exhibition halls to view the content, or heading to the viewing deck to enjoy the day and night views of Victoria Harbour, which brings more fun to the visit. Two new mini-games have also been added to the exhibition, allowing visitors, especially the youth, to enhance their understanding of the NSL in a fun way. In addition, print and search functions are enhanced to improve the exhibition's practicability.
