Where are we going today?

The museum features a series of in-house permanent exhibits that interpret the tsunami phenomena, the Pacific Tsunami Warning system, the history of tsunamis in the Pacific Basin, tsunamis of the future, myths and legends about tsunamis, and public safety measures for tsunami disasters.
By combining scientific information with actual testimony taken from oral histories of tsunami survivors, the museum plans to keep the history alive in its exhibits and public programs. Oral history testimonies reinforce existing scientific information and provide a perspective that will make the tsunami experience "real" for the museum visitor.
