The head of the operation for the rescue of 12 Thai boys and their soccer coach said Tuesday that the cave will be turned into a museum about the rescue.

Narongsak Osottanakorn said at a news conference that the Tham Luang cavern system in the country’s Chiang Rai province will become an interactive exhibit to showcase the rescue, according to Reuters.

“This area will become a living museum, to show how the operation unfolded,” Osottaanakorn said. “An interactive data base will be set up. It will become another major attraction for Thailand.”


Thai officials said Tuesday that before the cave can be opened to the public as a tourist attraction, extra safety precautions will have to be put in place due to the dangerous flooding that often affects the cave.
