The Site of the Pits where Lin Zexu had opium destroyed and the Ruin Site of Humen batteries under its administration are important historical relic units under state protection. The two sites, covering an area of 800 thousands square meters, have witnessed the Opium War. First built in 1957, the museum was initially named "Lin Zexu Memorial". In 1972, it was renamed "Anti-British Memorial for the Humen People in the Opium War" and in 1985, was denominated as "Lin Zexu Memorial in Humen". Finally the name "the Opium War Museum" was adopted for a better management of the ruins. The Shajiao Batteries Administrative Office which was founded in July 1987 and Weiyuan Batteries Administrative Office which was founded in January 1988 respectively administer the The Ruin Sites of Shajiao and Weiyuan Batteries.
