Introduction

Highlights
- Yet another of Kinmen's one-of-a-kind museums, this is perhaps our most extensive and sobering.
- 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.
- Exhibits include a startling and unsettling simulation of landmine explosions.

Landmine MuseumEverything you wanted to know about landmines, but were afraid to ask…It takes at least 15 min to walk through the museum, quite a bit longer if you stop to look at all the interesting information. This includes both local Kinmen and global perspectives:
*Astonishing statistics about landmines;
*Different types of landmines;
*Photos from around the world where landmines
  have been used;
*International efforts to ban landmines.

Landmine MuseumThank goodness all of Kinmen's landmines have been cleared.

    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 museum

    Due 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 cause

    What 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.
