This was the moving, informative site we were hoping for to better understand the impact of the Atomic Bomb on Nagasaki. The displays and explanations (almost all with English as well) offered that. It was, of course, sad and moving. At the end, there was...More

A very well thought out exhibition, combining a sense of the horror with a balanced view of background to the bombing. Its not a big museum but worth the tram trip. A short detour to see the One Legged Torri at Sanno Shrine is worth...More

Though it is pretty sad to visit the museum where it's showing the city after the Bomb, but I think it is really reminded each human being to cherish world peace. We learned a painful lesson.

A very well presented display. Full English interpretation. Only drawback was the cast of many school children, but I guess they have to go some time.

The museum was historical and educational. Having visited Hiroshima in March, I wanted to pay my respects here, too. I spent about four hours here as I like to take most everything in. The spacious museum flowed very well, no bottlenecking of visitors. I recommend...More

Visit for the artifacts. Do not visit for any history lesson. The Information panels lead one to believe that the Japanese had no fault in the dropping of the atomic bomb. Example: information panel states “Pacific War starts” instead of “Japan brings United States into...More

The museum is tasteful and informative with artefacts, stories and photographs that bring home the futility of war and the human suffering associated with it.

It was nice to see a historic place but at the same time heart was heavy imagining the incident which happened during the war.

I would suggest 2.5-3 hours total is sufficient for the museum. There can be crowds at some exhibits and all are worth viewing, take your time to read the placards presented in several languages. Arrive early if you're in a... More
