The Peace Bell found in the Museum gardens is quite nice. It actually allows the visitor to go up to the bell and ring it.

A reminder that peace is something that everyone should strive towards. A melodious reminder in a picturesque setting.

Anybody is able to ring this bell, and the sound stays in the memory. It is altogether very well judged.

The bell is in the same park where the peace museum and the memorial are. There is a sign that ask visitor to strike the bell gently and only after the sound of the previous strike has faded to avoid damaging it. 5 review stars for its significance.

The soft strike on the bell can be heard from across the park even though it is very low toned. It's a very fitting sound and tribute to those that lost their lives.

Let freedom ring and peace and hope. I will never forget the experience of visitors one by one ringing the bell and reflecting in their own way.

It's located near the other monuments, in the same park. You can touch it if you want. The day I went people was only taking pictures.
