When Katrina happened, all we heard about on the news was New Orleans. Waveland is where the brunt of the storm hit. Whole communities were wiped out, and few people outside of the area knew that. An emotional. place to visit

The small museum is very nice. The timeline along the wall is at the high water mark inside the building. It gives the visitor pictures and facts about the days before, during and after Katrina. So much was written about New Orleans that the rest...More

A nice little museum that interestingly displays the power of Hurricane Katrina and Camille. It's pretty small but it's free so there's nothing to lose. Bring your reading glasses-- most of the museum is newspaper articles to read, but there are some artifacts around.

The museum had pictures and artifacts from Hurricane Katrina. There were also various things from Waveland like mardi gras costumes and art. It's free to get into and about 5 minutes from the beach. If you are in the area, stop by.
