"Of historical significance for the folks of Tangshan"
May 2016 • Friends
I found this Memorial Hall to be an informative site that helped me better understand Tangshan and what the people had endured years before. When disaster strikes the character of the people is at stake and what I discovered was the people of Tangshan are strong and throughout my visit in Tangshan people would often share stories from what they personally experienced and how this disaster helped shape the Tangshan city of today. I had my passport with me so I had no issue with entrance.

Knowledge of Tangshan
May 2016 • Business
The official name is "Tangshan Earthquake Relief Memorial Hall" as indicated on the ticket. Entrance is free and you need to present an ID. The museum is closed on Monday. Photo taking within the premise is not allowed.

There are two levels of exhibits with the first devoting to history of Tangshan including its early phase of industrial development, and the earthquake - how the city and its people were affected and how the people in the country responded with disaster relief. The second level is on its development post earthquake. We covered the exhibits in an hour.

The park itself is nice to walk around and the memorial is good to visit to learn about the terrible events of 1976.

Beautiful Presentation of a Terrible Tragedy
Jul 2014 • Couples
Outstanding exhibits - and most things were written in both Chinese and English to allow visitors to understand. My gf's family were victims and we were able to see their names on the wall. This place acts as a designated earthquake shelter, offers beautiful sculpture and preserved damage outside and inside. Best yet, it shows a timeline of Tangshan - before, during and after the earthquake, and its progress to the wonderful city it is today.

A gift shop or nearby foodstand would have been nice, but I understand their desire to keep the area dedicated to the events. Despite its morbid history, actually a very fun site and great for people of all ages - a learning experience if nothing else.

A unique museum that records the bitter past
May 2014 • Business
I finally got a chance to visit the Museum the first time after the 1976 quake to see the city's yesterday through the numerous heart-breaking exhibits. its was built on the previously quake site, but without seeing the relics of a building, the Memorial Wall and the Memorial Hall, I could hardly see any traces of the catastrophic devastation which killed over 240,000 people on July 28, 1976.

The Museum and its Wall were all colored in grey and black which could easily bring visitors like me back to the past. The exhibits housed in it and the 4-D film shown in the theater hall educate the visitors not only about the scale of the quake in the past but also ways to predict it in the future. However, while watching the film I was bothered a little bit by the laughter of others who seemed excited by its 4-D special effects. I'm still not sure if it's a good idea for the museum to add sort of entertainment to the tour.

Standing in front of the half-a-mile long Wall, I was appalled by the degree of destruction that the unprecedented earthquake in the city had brought to its people and its visitors on that day (including my handsome young college professor on his honeymoon). It's truly a sacred shrine for people to remember the dead and to strive for their better tomorrow in the city.

You can only read and listen in Chinese but no English (at list when was there).
But pictures were talking themselves of pain and suffer of people. Also about their unity and human sensation.

Not only about the 1976 earthquake, but largely about future plans for Tangshan city and district, inclluding the port.
Free entry with a passport or Chinese ID.

Like everything in this city the Earthquake Memorial Hall is dusty. But its interessting to see the devastation of the city and the phenomenal rebuild.
Since 2012 there is a Wanda Place Shopping mall right around the corner, with a nice Starbucks and some good shops.
In the evening there are a lot of young couples around the memorial, older people gather to dance and you can play carnival like games in the "park" area.
