Pacific Tsunami Museum

Description

Many volunteers staff this museum, housed in a former bank building in downtown Hilo. The volunteers, some of whom are tsunami survivors, greet visitors and share their stories. A tour takes visitors past pictures of the two tsumanis that hit Hilo, as well as how these tidal waves form from an earthquake. The former bank vault serves as a video theater for viewing a 23-minute film, "The Raging Sea," with documentary footage and moving survivors' stories. Video touch screens accompany the exhibits and a tsunami warning center provides interactive opportunities.
