We visitied the museum after spending some time at Laupahoehoe Beach Park where some of the tragedy played out during the 1946 tsunami.
It is a really well configured and regularly updated tour led by local narrators that leaves you in no doubt of the power of the ocean. The building housing it is also very cool with the video theatre housed in the bands vault.
This is not to be missed if you have be moved by the recent tsunami events in Japan and the Pacific. It was made all the more poiniant when on our last night on the island there was a full scale tsunami alert accross the pacific and we heard and saw the evacuation process for real!
