Fodor's Review

In downtown Hilo, businesses tend to be far from the bayfront. There's a reason for this. Tsunamis have killed more people in Hawaii than any other natural event, especially in Hilo. A small but informative museum in a 1931 building provides tsunami education and scientific information, and chronicles the poignant history of these devastating disasters, with accounts taken from tsunami survivors from Hawaii and worldwide. Exhibits include a wave machine and tsunami warning

center simulation as well as detailing recent tsunamis in Japan, Alaska, and Indonesia.
