Well-- this is a world tragedy we all have deep in our hearts-- similar to Fukushima & 9/11 -- some things are important like that-- the rest is transitory.

Lack of English translation. But the design is really good and quite informative. Worth a visit. After this, continue to PLTU Apung not far from the museum.

this is a good museum, great architecture. But there are 2 bad things. First, the pool, so dirty. Second, the documentary movie, okay to watch, but not so good.

This museum has complete information about tsunami especially Aceh tsunami tragedy in 2004. The museum building is unique and quite clean in general. The location is also strategic in the city center.

We can watch the tsunami documentary film in aceh and see some pictures related to the disaster. The museum is not too big and we can also find the names of aceh tsunami victims
