What people are saying:

Relatively modest entrance fee. My impression is that the focus of the museum deepens the fear of earthquakes. indeed so. Although this phenomenon in nature is relatively rare, if you encounter it once, you are either not ready or you don't know what happened, it will drift by. In general, I did understand some previously unknown information, mainly about how technology can effectively provide early warning systems for earthquake paths. However, as the instructor said, if an earthquake occurs very close to the coastline, residents living in lower areas are more likely to be attacked by it.

    Worth The Stop

    We were getting hot and thought it would be nice to be inside for a while. This museum was in front of us so we went in. Now we know more about Tsunamis than we would have imagined.

    Pay Attention

    We dropped in 45 minutes before closing and thought that that would be enough. Wrong! There is so much to see and think about in the museum that we should have given ourselves twice as long. Tsunam...

    Very Informative!

    After viewing Tsunamis on You Tube we decided to visit the museum it's worth you time. It only takes about an hour. Make sure you watch the video.
