I would highly recommend visitors to drop by the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. There are great locations such as the benches along the rivers where excellent photographs can be captured. However, I would say the most important thing to do is to unravel the history.... this would definitely value-add your trip and make it a more meaningful one. Excellent!

A superb museum though leave you with a chill. The most impressive part for me is a circular map of Hiroshima before the blast then the blast occurres and when it clears you see the devastation. Maybe get a few of the world leaders around this and explain to them what's the point we would all be dead in a... More

Of course if you visit this city, this museum is what you come to visit. The city has dedicated itself to promoting peace, yet again it is due to the bombing, and to see the Dome (one of 2 bldgs in the city which are pre-WWII) is very moving in itself. However the museum highlights the experience of the affected... More

Wonderful place we weren't sure about the long journey here but well worth the visit. Children were singing in the garden today. Make your own mind up about the reasons behind all this - lots of historical evidence.

This museum does a service for the world in remembering the bomb and its victims. You can while a way a thoughtful number of hours here and then reflect further in the beautiful park hat surrounds the museum.

One place I have always wanted to visit to pay my respects and glad I have done so. Very moving but harrowing reading the events 6th August 1945 at 08.15 when the world stopped for the innocent citizens of Hiroshima.

I was really looking forward to visiting the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum (as strange as that sounds), and it did not disappoint. Despite being very busy, it was very well set out, informative and moving. I felt that the exhibition was informative without being too biased (particularly since I have also visited Pearl Harbour and it's quite different!), giving an... More

Wow, this museum encapsulates why we need peace. From the A bomb dome, looking down peace park, past the children's memorial, the eternal flame, and the cenotaph with all the names of the dead, we have a constant reminder of the futility of war and the human suffering caused nuclear weapons. Particularly poignant is the child's tricycle, burned and distorted,... More

you will have to adopt your own analysis of the tragic day. The exhibits were few but lots of written explanation from the science of fission and what led to the bombing on Aug 6th 1945.
