This skeleton of a building is all that remains in the area where the first atomic bomb exploded on August 6, 1945, and serves as a symbol of both the horrors of atomic war and the hope for world peace.

It’s a short visit but a reminder of the devastation of the bombing. The building looks much like the photos of it in the 1940s. You can walk around and it is a good photo op but you cannot go inside. There are other buildings...More

I visited the Atomic Bomb Dome as part of a tour of Hiroshima and found this part of the tour quite underwhelming. I think it would have been better if the building had been removed and maybe just the park and the peace museum remain...More

If you visit Hiroshima you are bound to visit Hiroshima peace park. This place is just at the entrance of the park. The history behind it is very interesting. A must visit

The dome used to be a public building, now it is a reminder of what a single atomic bomb can do. At the start of the memorial gardens just as you hop off the tram.

This a very good reminder of why we should never do this again. It is quiet confronting. Glad we made the visit and hope it never happens again.

The Atomic Bomb Dome should be a reminder to the whole world that peace is essential for the future of all mankind. Looking at it should make one ponder the horrible consequences if this should happen again, only it would be much worse. Truly something...More

The A-Bomb dome, the memorial park and museum were well worth the time to see it. Although it is sad, it's a visit worth seeing and will leave you awestruck at the devastation. If you are traveling with small children, I would avoid the museum...More

Don't bother with a tour. It's simple to get around on foot and you can get headphones with English translation. Inexpensive and intensely moving experience. The City of Hiroshima is beautiful and very peaceful with wide... More

It is in an open park so it is always open. The whole park has various places within it, one site being the Atomic Bomb some. the museums keep open and closing hours. Hope this helps.
