◼️Landmine Museum links Yongshi Fort and Tiehan Fort.
◼️It is the only landmine museum in Kinmen.
◼️The simulation of a landmine explosion is astonishing.
Tiehan Fort and Yongshi Fort used to serve as the nation’s indispensable stronghold for defense. As the tension of war is no longer imminent, tourism in Kinmen started to prosper, and tourists start visiting Little Kinmen for the unique military relics. While many fortresses were made open to the general public, many facilities were repurposed as themed museums.
The underground passage that links Yongshi Fort and Tiehan Fort is now a one-of-a-kind landmine museum! In addition to a general introduction on different types of landmines and the history, there is an interactive landmine simulation zone where visitors would have to tiptoe to prevent setting off a landmine that will cause the horrible sound of an explosion!
Opening Hours 08:00-17:00, daily except for Chinese New Year's Day

Fort, tunnels, museum, and more!This is not just a museum, but also a fort and a network of tunnels. Parts of the fort/tunnels offer insight into the lives of the soldiers and how they defended Kinmen, but much of the place is quite barren, giving it a rather eery feeling. I went in February when there were no crowds and enjoyed peaceful silence throughout most of my wanderings in the maze-like tunnels. It's recommended to bring a flashlight (or fully charge smartphone) as a couple sections are poorly lit. After a while, you'll eventually stumble

An unique museumDue to Kinmen beaches used to have a lot of landmines, it’s nice to have this landmine museum to let public to gain more knowledge about landmines. It started the history and introduction of landmines. It then displayed different kinds of landmines and has a landmine path with some sound effects. I really enjoyed the trip.
A good causeWhat the do is for a good cause, but the museum is very far out of town and the museum itself is very poor. 5 USD per person to enter but it will cost you around 10 USD to get there.
