As much as the entry architecture of the building would have you believe you are moving through the historic hypocenter of the bomb, that park is elsewhere (not far). Most of the museum is very quiet, despite many visitors, and taking pictures just feels disrespectful....More

Be sure to get the audio guide as it offers additional information to the signs. Moving, but has less graphic photos than in the Hiroshima Memorial Museum.

This was a very interesting and sobering exhibition on the dropping of the Atomic Bomb with many gruesome photos. It was laid out in a factual way with real artifacts from the time. I learned much about the event that i didn`t previously know. However...More

Lest we forget the trauma and impact of our actions, how could we? It helps us understand the impact of our actions and inactions.

Sobering , well done. Flows well. Doesn't glamorize any aspect of war and the presentation was politically neutral as could be done.

I think the museum should add a huge section explaining why the bombs were dropped, the suffering the Japanese had caused to people in nearby countries. I wonder if the Japanese, the major visitors of this museum, truly understand what had actually happened during those...More

We did a two day tour (the other day was spent visiting Hashima - aka Battleship Island - which was also humbling but in a different way) of Nagasaki and the bomb museum and peace park nearby are both must-visits. The museum displays and commentary...More

A must see museum while in Nagasaki but worth the cost of entry. A solemn experience so can be quite draining. From the museum an easy walk to the peace park.

The museum gives a good overview of the terrible events on 9 August 1945. The pictures were more explicit than those in the museum in Hiroshima. We were surprised to see young kids viewing this pictures. It is good to be aware of this for...More

Too far to walk. You can do it by tram but you will need to change. Taxi is easier.
