There are some things that all people should see and this is one of them. We all should understand the horrors of war.. This place is well set out and a worthwhile visit.

In the same building with the Atomic bomb museum. Quiet open spaces to reflect on the lives of the victims. Lots of water & reflecting pool

The memorial hall is (to me) a spectacular piece of architecture - both light and dark, somehow looking back at the past to remember the victims whilst moving forwards. Hard to explain, I know. Just visit it, and hopefully you'll understand what I mean.

Reasonable exhibits illustrating the atomic bombing of Nagasaki. One can't help feeling sad for the victims of the bombing. However, one also feel that the world does not care much and continue to arm themselves with nuclear weapons.

As with the museum and park nearby this is sure to produce strong emotions. It is very well done in my humble opinion and should not be missed while visiting the museum. Another opportunity to reflect on the destruction and wastefulness of war.

Hi Andrea, Depending on your "interest" ( casual or serious) it could range from one hour to three would be my opinion. Hope this helps John.
