Boat at Desa Lampulo, Banda Aceh

3.9
Pay your respects to the victims of the 2004 tsunami at Boat at Desa Lampulo, memorializing the natural disaster that wreaked havoc on the town of Aceh. Witness a displaced barge, pushed 5 km (3.1 mi) from its original mooring, which now sits on pavement. The barge now houses a museum depicting the tragic events of that day. Survey further damage from the rooftop of the barge, which gives you a panoramic view of the wounded city. Outside, a bronze wave statue gives a true-to-size representation of the debilitating surf that crashed over the city. There are many more displaced boats to see, including one fishing boat now sitting atop a house. To visit Boat at Desa Lampulo on your trip to Banda Aceh, use our Banda Aceh trip planning app .
