On Wednesday, the head of the operation for the rescue of 12 Thailand boys and their soccer coach announced that Thailand’s Tham Luang cave will become a museum to showcase how the operation took place.

According to Reuters, Narongsak Osottanakorn said in a news conference that the Tham Luang cavern system will become an interactive exhibit to showcase the rescue after the cave has been put on the map, because of the national coverage of the boys’ rescue.

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

After a grueling search, The group was found alive by two British divers who discovered the 12 boys and their coach in a flooded Thai cave, where they had been trapped for more than two weeks.

The youth soccer team between the ages of 11 and 17 along with their 25-year-old coach stop to explore the Tham Luang cave and found themselves stranded. The team was rescued over the last couple of days by a group of elite drivers and the Thai Navy Seals. However, a Thai driver died last Friday in the cave due to lack of oxygen which showed just how dangerous the operation was.

Because of the dangerous flooding that affects the cave and the close quarters, Thai officials told The Hill they will have extra safety precautions put in place for the tourist.
