Kapal Tsunami, Banda Aceh

(130+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
Pay your respects to the victims of the 2004 tsunami at Kapal Tsunami, 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. Before you head to Banda Aceh, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Banda Aceh vacation builder, to make sure you see all that Banda Aceh has to offer, including Kapal Tsunami.
