More on Khao Lak
Located in what’s little more than a shop house along Phet Kasem Rd in Bang Niang, the Tsunami Museum provides an opportunity to reflect on the momentous impact the 2004 Tsunami had on the Khao Lak area through the documented stories of locals.
Travelfish says:

As far as museums go, there’s not a whole lot to see here, but the photographs of the devastation left by the Tsunami and stories of survivors is enough to bring a tear to the eye for most, and the museum still offers volunteer opportunities to those looking to lend a hand to locals who lost most or all of their families in the disaster.

For the more scientifically inclined, the museum also has displays on earthquakes, seismic activity in the area, and what actually causes tsunamis to occur.
