Abstract

Yogyakarta has a volcanic mountain that is still active today, Mount Merapi. Its location in the north of the city of Yogya looks very manly even though seen from a distance the south side. The existence of Mount Merapi, which is still active, makes people of Jogja aware and aware of the potential disasters caused. In this regard, the government created the Merapi Volcano Museum (Museum Gunung Merapi/MGM) to increase public knowledge and understanding of volcanoes and other geological disasters.Very interesting collections at the Mount Merapi Museum or MGM include objects affected by the 2010 Merapi eruption, and various kinds of rocks carried by the Merapi eruption, one of which is 65 mm diameter incandescent rocks. In addition, of course there are tools to detect earthquakes and some volcanic maps in Indonesia, and there are also tools for monitoring volcanic activity. This two-story building clearly presents an integrated knowledge of volcano.By using a qualitative methodology and case study approach, the writing of this article aims to understand the landscape of humanitarian tragedy that was developed into a study of disaster literacy through the media museum as a disaster tourism destination. The author hopes to contribute to the development of similar studies going forward.
