  • From the outside the place looks not look like much, but the feeling inside the House was strong. The Museum is created by a woman who survived the tsunami in 2004 and it is her rebuilt House, which puts the frame. She tells about all the photos she has and it is harsh stories. A fine visit which can be solved in half an hour, as it largely is only photos.

  • People affected by the tsunami staff here lost everything, the photography museum. At first I thought with some expert help the museum could a lot more professional eyes. Upon closer inspection I found it right in all his simplicity very endearing. Hang in there anywhere cries about world peace and so that you do not associate with a natural disaster. Mrs has nailed her refugee tent against the ceiling. All in all, the tsunami gets definitely a (horrible) face here. The museum now for employment, a good thing.

  • I think it is interesting to visit, since you know the reality lived during and after the tsunami through pictures, drawings of children, graphic... Volunteers who had... It's really shocking but very human! Donation can give to will at the end if you want.

  • Our family visited the museum and the Peraliya Buddha. Good tour about the cause of the tsunami and the impact. It's a small museum but very worthwhile a visit.
  • Small but worth a visit if your nearby. Friendly and informative staff.
  • Don't rush trough it like an idiot but take 30 minutes and read all the text and look at each picture. Then its a fascinating place to go.
  • Hmmm.. not bad..
  • Getting an effort to contemplate what happened
