Exhibits include a startling and unsettling simulation of landmine explosions.
The Landmine Museum is in a tunnel linking two forts on either side of it, Yongshi and Tiehan Forts. The official way into the museum is through Yongshi Fort.
Yet another of Kinmen's one-of-a-kind museums, this is perhaps our most extensive and sobering.
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!
