- People from all over the world visit the Pacific Tsunami Museum (PTM), arriving by air and sea. Therefore, PTM takes an active role in promoting tourism. Pre-arranged tsunami presentations are given to ship passengers and other groups. The Museum works with the Downtown Improvement Association to beautify downtown Hilo. Efforts include planting flowers and placing art pieces.
- "Destination Hilo" promotes positive experiences for our island visitors. The Museum participates with Destination Hilo's "Big Island Museum Discount Pass" program.
