  • It gives you a very sad feeling but also a good reminder of how nature can become devastating. There was plenty of information and lots of pics about the fatal 2004 Tsunami.
  • This is a an excellent little stop. Take half an hour between towns and see amazing collection of photos, some of them very graphic and upsetting, and get better understanding of the tsunami. Simple donation only and the curator gave excellent tour and explanations of photos.
  • Can't take photos inside but a nice low budget museum. They'll ask you for tips when you leave though.
  • wow. it is dangeres place bro
  • Must visit place in hikkaduwa
