According to the Urban Planning Bureau of Miaoyang City in Sichuan Province, preliminary planning for an earthquake museum in Beichuan, which has received much public attention and concern, has been completed.

Beichuan County suffered heavy damage from the May 12 earthquake in Wenchuan; the county seat was virtually flattened. Mianyang City in Sichuan Province has planned to take in residents of Beichuan County. As a physical testament to the most devastating earthquake since the founding of New China, an earthquake museum will be built at the Beichuan county seat.

The Mianyang Urban Planning Bureau has said that preliminary planning for the Beichuan earthquake museum included a survey of the county seat and determination of the land to be used. It has also decided on the type of content, value orientation, and other components of the museum.

The earthquake museum will serve as a testament and display, a memorial and a reminder, a channel of information and education, and a method of research and development, showing the real history of the Wenchuan earthquake.
