Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web
Remember the tragedy caused by a major natural disaster at Museum Tsunami Aceh. Enter the building through a narrow corridor between two high walls of falling water, recreating a small fraction of the terrible power of the 2004 tsunami. Inside, find a large open space for contemplation, as well as pictures, videos, recovered objects, and names of those lost in the disaster. Some of the images are quite graphic, which may not make this attraction suitable for young children. The building also serves as an emergency shelter, in case of future tsunamis.

  • The fact that this place provides free entrance is awesome enough! I wish that the video shown to us was in a better quality. Understand that the footage was from a decade ago but at least proper editing would make it more watchable. A smaller screen would do too as the room was small. We were lucky too that our tour guide really brought us around and explained things in detail.
  • bukti-bukti sejarah
  • Great place tO visit tO learn about from Aceh Many tourists from around the world been here. As Acehnese we always to say thank you to every countries those have been as donator for this building. To be honest this from the world to Aceh that can open eyes of us about tsunami knowledge.
  • This was designed as the momentum of Tsunami tragedy that happened in Aceh in 2004. It represents most of the pictures of before and after about the tragedy. It can be also a place for learning new things. It is such a seriously touching place, we can also watch a video of the tragedy back then that obviously brings us to tears, what more impressing is that, on the top of the museum, there is a "shelter of disaster" so that the refugees can take that place to save their lives in the future. All in all, a very amazing place!
  • Great place for visit..the management should provide a cozy canteen's totally free to enter mesium, thank you .
