WPC – Converge: Aceh Tsunami Museum

This week photo challenge is Converge, and here is my photo.

Tsunami Museum

This is the miniatur of Tsunami museum that I found in the museum. The only Tsunami museum is located in Aceh, built after the devastating Tsunami that severely hit Aceh province in 2004. You will find a lot of stories related to the natural disaster inside this building. Not only pictures, you will also find videos inside it. Most importantly you will experience with the noise water and darkness like the Acehnese used to experience during the Tsunami attack.

This Aceh tsunami museum was designed by Ridwan Kamil, the Architect who currently is also the major of Bandung. It is opened every day from 09.00 until 16.30, except monday. Recently it has more that 800 visitors daily and more than a thousand during the weekend. Entry to the museum is free and the tour guide is available if you visit in group. Jak Lom U Aceh.
