Kinmen Cultural Park is located in Shamei to the east of the Island and was built for the purpose of passing on Kinmen's culture. The "Kinmen Museum of History and Folklore" was open to the public in December, 2010, and the exhibitions can be divided into six categories that encompass historic landmark, architecture, and crafts: 1) “Sea of Kinmen”; 2) “God Bless Our Land”; 3) “Folk Calendar”; 4) “History”; 5) Past and Present; 6) Years of Wealth and Prospering Families. The museum explores how the geological environment has influenced the development of Kinmen, as well as religions and traditions. Starting from the local lifestyle, culture and history, the museum enables visitors to see another side of Kinmen other than being a battlefield.

The Museum’s Great Treasure: The Gengyin Emperor’s Tombstone
The Gengyin Emperor’s Tombstone was discovered by the Nationalist troops in 1959 when they were bombing down the mountain to collect stones. They found an ancient tomb and rectangular stone monument. Through the 726-word inscription that describes the life of The Gengyin Emperor, they ed that it is the real tomb of The Gengyin Emperor. This tombstone is “The Gengyin Emperor’s Tombstone,” and Yongli coins were also discovered during this excavation.
The Gengyin Emperor’s Tombstone was declared a national treasure by the government in 2011 after being acknowledged to be important to the studies on the history of Southern Ming in Taiwan based on the literature on The Gengyin Emperor’s Tombstone.
