  • This is one of two tsunami museums in Telwatta. Visit them both as their focus and displays are a little different. This one is very personal to the host, in whose house this display resides. Mrs Da S...  more »
  • Before our trip to Sri Lanka we agreed, that we visit the Museum during our stay in Hikkaduwa. It was easy to find, it is on the main road to the beach. We were very friendly, the construction of the Museum was told us we should leave everything on us work and questions give - a sign because everything on English is explained, there are questions. The pictures speak for themselves. It of incredibly poignant, sad and stimulates thinking. The images are unverschönt, and that's a good thing. So awful they are and so painful, they are more clear, which really meant this disaster and how important are education and alarm systems is one. The museum requires no admission, but very grateful for donations. And I think that everyone should leave too.

  • Heart breaking pictures displayed. The media never showed the real time scenarios
  • Small building near the road. Many photos described the tragic history about the tsunami in 2004.
  • Sad but necessary to see I think
  • It was really sad and you can’t even begin to imagine the catastrophe sitting far away . You appreciate how blessed u are for each day
  • Well worth a visit, explains the causes of tsunami and shows what really happened in this area of Sri Lanka (which the media have not recounted). It is obviously very sad but at the same time, highly recommended!
