I would highly recommend this for no other reason than to get a sense for how Japan, and specifically Hiroshima, view the events leading to the 1945 bombing and subsequent rebuilding. The devastation is well paired with a deep examination of preceding events and presents everything as more fact with personal stories as a buoy rather than the main focus.

If you are in Hiroshima or 1-2 hours away (e.g. Kyoto or Osaka) it's definitely somewhere to consider visiting. It may change what you think of humanity and suffering. It was a very intense visit - took the Shinkansen from Kyoto early morning and arrived mid-morning. Not a visit to rush through, because what you see will affect you. Before... More

The museum is located in peace park. The museum has a number of exhibits of everyday items burned and melted by the blast. This is a place to contemplate the horrors of nuclear war. If possible get the audio narration!

This is definitely not a place to miss in Japan. It is so important to have such a Memorial as a warning to future generations. I spent some 30 minutes having a most wonderful woman helping me make a paper crane. Needless to say my crane looked like a lame duck, but she gifted me with hers which was perfect.

I first visited the museum 30 years ago and it remains one of the most moving places I have visited. The displays are excellent and there are many English-speaking volunteers who are a great source of additional information. The accounts of the events on the day of the bombing, and its subsequent effects, are presented in a very factual manner.... More

Really a must do in Hiroshima, I was shocked of how graphic is the images at the museum and how schools visit in order to learn from it. Also I was shocked to see what a city Hiroshima has become when just 75 years ago was burnt to ashes.

This was a very interesting exhibition though part of it was closed for Renovations. If you get the audio guide it should take about an hour to go through. I had read other reviews that said the museum was very crowded and that was absolutely true. I believe the congestion is in part due to the arrangement of some of... More

There are many different incident and photo taken during the end of ww2. At the day of 6 Aug 1945. We really cant forget that day. That was the day which everything started to go wrong and although that was one of the reason of ww2 ended but we cant denied. one day later we must face a nuclear war.... More
