Found the museum informative and well presented. Most will be much more informed on what tsunamis are all about.
I thoroughly enjoyed this museum. It had a lot of information about tsunamis, why they happen, what to do when they happen, where they have happened, and where they may happen in the future. Many old photographs which I find fascinating. Some videos of interviews with tsunami survivors that I could not hear at all, which irritated me. They had... More
This small museum on the main street gives scientific data while telling the stories of individuals who died and who survived tsunamis here in Hawaii and at other places on the Pacific Rim. It is definitely worth a visit.
We walked into the tsunami museum, a small donation at the door, and a wealth of information inside.

They have a lot of interesting information in this museum for anyone who wishes to be... More
The Pacific Tsunami Museum was not in the guidebooks we read, but since we drove by it we decided to stop. With a good self-guided tour, and a very informative video, we learned how the islands of Hawaii are in greater danger from tsunamis than from volcanoes or typhoons. It doesn't take long to tour this museum, but it is... More
