The Opium War Museum

Pinhai Fort in Shajiao, Humen Town

The Naval Battle Museum

The destruction of Opium led by Lin Zexu and the Opium war started the modern history of China. It highlights the important status of Dongguan as the place where China's modern history started as Lin Zexu Opium-Destruction Pit and the former site of Humen Emplacement are the objective witnesses of this important event in China's modern history. Grandly seated on the Pearl River estuary, Humen Emplacement along with its high mountains and green water makes the all scenery spacious and broad. Lin Zexu Opium-Destruction Pit and the former site of Humen Emplacement are listed as key cultural relic units under State Protections for their high historical values. They are a National Patriotism Education Base, a National Youth Education Base and a Drug Prohibition Education Base. Enjoying great reputation at home and abroad, they are very significant historical and cultural resources and popular relic tourist scenic spots. All this means a lot to the construction of the new city and the highlighting of urban historical and cultural specialties.
