Lonely Planet review

You cannot understand Hilo without knowing her history as a two-time tsunami survivor in 1946 and 1960. This nonprofit museum might seem modest, but it's also a key education and research center chock-full of riveting info. Allow enough time to experience the multimedia exhibits, such as chilling computer simulations and filmed oral histories and documentaries, especially the heart-wrenching first-person accounts by survivors.
