The impact of such an natural event was to say the least felt world wide. To recall the shear enormity of this or see it for the first time is a sadening expierence. Go down to where the police boat is .

The idea of the memorial park is great. But nothing much to see - only the boat and a small museum. Could be made a lot more of with other displays.

No much inside regarding display...very small museum, but it was more about making a donation to help the homeless children as a result of the tsunami

This museum is somewhat basic but very informative. Information was well presented, and before and after photos were very confronting. 300 baht to get in.
