Would you like to make a contribution?

Do you have any old photographs, newspaper articles, books, letters, videos, or artifacts that portray the tsunamis in Hawai’i? Don’t know what do do with them? Would you like them kept somewhere where they can be preserved and shared with others in exhibits? If so, please contact the archive. We accept donations that are pertinent to the history, science, effects and remembrance of tsunamis in Hawai’i and the Pacific.

If you have a story to share with us, we would like to interview you. Please contact us at

Please keep in mind that your donations help promote our understanding of and appreciation for tsunamis for research and educational purposes. Original photo collections can be returned after they have been digitized, and you can receive a copy of your images in digital format.
