Waveland’s Ground Zero Hurricane Museum

Take a scenic look through the lives and struggles of survivors of Hurricanes. Coastal life is sometimes stormy, but coastal people have the resilience to survive and thrive even in the face of great natural adversity. This museum gives visitors a unique perspective on the stories, art, and fabric of the lives of those who stand up in times of trouble and rebuild.


Hurricane Katrina has been called the worst natural disaster in U.S. history.  Waveland, Mississippi was Ground Zero.  Katrina’s winds and tsunami-like surge devoured dozens of lives and tens of thousands of homes across the coast, leaving behind devastation and heartbreak on a scale that stunned the world.
But that’s only half of the story.  Fueled with courage, bolstered by humor and lifted up by an unprecedented number of volunteers who poured in from around the country, the people of the Mississippi coast began to rebuild their lives and their towns.  Our museum is not a memorial to a  disaster, but a tribute to the strength and beauty of the human spirit.
 An exhibit “Backyards and Beyond” by H.C. Porter, sponsored by Mississippi Power, opened on August 29th, 2015. This exhibit shares stories of survival and recovery. The subjects of the paintings are accompanied by audio interviews.
