Felt it was important to pay respects by visiting this memorial, police boat 813 and small souvenir shop which we feel was a bit of a rip off, although they did say it was for the victims, not convinced about this paid 600 baht for 2 small elephants, which we late saw in the market for 100 baht. I hope the money does go to helping the victims of this awful tragedy

Although there isn’t an awful lot to see here, if your near by I’d go have a look. It’s free to enter. Scary to see how far the police boat actually travelled in from the ocean.

My friends and I visited the Tsunami memorial whilst staying in KhaoLak, my word what an experience. The Police boat that is the centre of attraction was forced 2km from where it was during the Tsunami to where it is today, a harrowing reminder of that Boxing Day catastrophe in 2004. There were lots of documentary evidence as to how many lives were lost during that terrible trauma, videos to watch (which I'm afraid we couldn't due to the nature of the film shown it would have upset us too much), well worth a visit if staying here

We visited Thailand for the first time this year. The most amazing holiday we’ve had so far. We stayed in an area where the tsunami hit hardest. We thought we should visit the museum out of respect. The museum was very disappointing. However proceeds go to i orphans so we were happy to donate money.

Definitely worth a visit, picked up some trinkets while we were there and donated to the tsunami charity. Informative, upsetting and very surreal
