A comprehensive history of war in Little Kinmen and old photos are on display.

Being so close to Mainland China, Hujingtou was one of Kinmen's important strongholds for psychological warfare. This museum, with its distinctive architecture, was built in 1988. 
Weapons like cannons, 57mm artillery guns and machines guns are on display outside.
Inside, you can see detailed records of Dadan and Erdan Battles, August 23 Artillery Battle and the military operations in Little Kinmen. A variety of other exhibits include telephones that let you listen in on former soldiers' calls home--in Mandarin Chinese, naturally!

    The closest spot to Xiamen from Leiyu. Actually, your cell phone would automatically pick up Xiamen carrier signal instead because it’s so close. It’s not hard to picture which kind of hardship back then for those soldiers staying here. I have a much better picture to know way more about my friends who served military service here.

    HuJingtou is yet another war museum on Kinmen Island. Good history with many pictures and some signage in English. It's on the northwest part of the Island, about 15 minutes from Haifu Hotel main part of Island. Is free, like all Kinmen attractions. Worth a visit, but less impressive than 8-2-3 Artillery Battle Museum.

    A walk through the civil defence tunnel is a must for you to know more about the history of the place!!
