Highlights

Enjoy a unique video-watching experience inside a former howitzer fortress.

Listen to oral histories of veterans at the Veteran Story House. (in Mandarin Chinese only)

With its collection of more than 200 species of native plants from Kinmen and Southeast China, the Botanical Garden is a lovely place for a stroll.

Introduction

Take a pleasant walk through bamboo and flower-filled trails. Listen for the cheerful sounds of native birds chirping, and in the summer, seek out blooming lotuses. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the afternoon here!
Kinmen Botanical Garden and Veteran Story House
At the foot of Taiwu Mountain, the Botanical Garden is maintained through a joint effort by the Kinmen County Government and Forestry Bureau. There are several display areas with different themes. You can learn about plant propagation, river ecology, wetland ecology and aquatic plants.

Veteran Story House
Tucked inside the Botanical Garden, a 20-minute walk from the entrance is the Veteran Story House. Originally this was the control room of a water plant. Now it has recordings of former soldiers. Hear personal stories from those who served in the military in Kinmen.

Howitzer Fortress Movie Theater
Another little gem inside the Botanical Garden is a small movie theater inside a former howitzer fortress. For a special visual experience, videos are played on a 240-degree screen using seven projectors. There are 2 different videos, both in Mandarin Chinese. One's about Kinmen's trees; the other's about the development of the Botanical Garden itself.
