Museum building with great architechture. All there is to know about the devastated 2004 tsunami. Lots of information about the sad events. Though there could be more info on the science of what causes a tsunami but overall its a good museum.

Quite few exhibits are closed, in need of maintenance. Run down museum in need of investment/refurbishment. It's is extremely important to keep this museum open to remind future generations of the impact this tsunami had to this region not only on personal level but also...More

Was OK to visit again with new friends but the layout is odd and its limited on content. As nothing much in town its worth the punt if you stay a few hours.

I think this is possible. The reception is rather large and locked. We had actually waiting our tricycle with all our luggage. Good luck
