Museum of Sino-Japanese War

Besides the stunning seashore scenery, Liugong Island is well-known for a tragic military defeat. In 1894, Japan launched an invasive war against China, also called the Jiawu War. Liugong Island serves as a memorial of this influential sea battle. The museum takes the Beiyang Navy and Sino-Japanese War of 1894 as its theme. Many other sites and cultural artifacts of the Jiawu War remain here, such as the Headquarters of the Beiyang Navy, Memorial Hall of Beiyang Soldiers, marines and three emplacements. In addition, there is also a Sino-Japanese Sea Battle Demonstration Museum, which wholly displays the history of Beiyang Navy with buildings, sculptures and paintings.
