The victims of the 2004 Asian Tsunami are being commemorated in a new museum that’s just opened in the Indonesian province of Aceh. Of the 240,000 people that died, more than half that number were from Aceh.
As well as being a poignant reminder of the disaster the museum will serve as an educational centre and also a shelter in case another Tsunami strikes. The actual design is unique in that the roof resembles a wave and the four storey building is built in the shape of ship. Although the museum is now open, there are very few exhibits yet.
