In my opinion, this is a must see. This is a reminder of what mankind can do to itself. It's a good opportunity to reflect and just think of the devastation this region endured.

An absolutely must visit, very emotional to see the impact of the bomb, not just in the building but the area around as well. Not to miss if you're in Hiroshima.

Hard to describe a place that has been left untouched after an A bomb blast over 70 years ago. Eerie and Sombre and plenty of time for reflective thought as you view the building. A visit to the A Bomb Museum is a must do...More

The classic tourist attraction of hiroshima and also so sad to see. It was really emotional to see how destructive that bomb was.

We combined viewing the dome with a visit with the nearby Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and park as it is close by. It is photogenic and awesome that it survived total destruction.

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
