This museum is dedicated to preserving the memory of those who died in the Hawaiian tsunami of April 1, 1946. Upon arrival, there is a guide who gives a 10-15 minute history of tsunamis and the April 1946 one which killed a number of school children as well as adults on the Big Island coast. There is information about other tsunamis as well. One room has a video of survivors giving their eyewitness accounts of that fateful day which I found interesting. There are old photographs and other artifacts. It is located on the main street in Hilo and is reasonably priced at $8. It takes about an hour to visit.
