The entrance to the museum is on hill that requires walking up stairs or taking an elevator on the side of the hill. There is an entrance fee to the museum. The museum is two levels. The visitors are directed to follow a path in one direction. There is a gift shop and a place to buy a light meal near the entrance. There are pictures, statues and exhibits from the area of the bomb explosion.

My wife and I recently visited to well designed memorial museum that described the dropping of the atomic bomb on this city. Authentic photographs and recovered artifacts made the experience even more vivid.

An absolute must see in Nagasaki!

Visited this museum on a cruise port stop primarily to compare it to the Atomic Bomb museum in Hiroshima. Although this museum does not have as many historical photos and graphic displays as Hiroshima, it provides a truer history of the Japanese involvement in WWII. I was very disturbed by the Hiroshima museum's historical writeup about how Japan went into China to "help" the Chinese as it's an attempt to hide the historical fact that it was an invasion and attempt to take over China. At least in the Nagasaki museum, there were at least a couple of displays using the terms "invasion" in describing the Japanese presence in China during WWII. The museum also provided an inside look at what the U.S. was planning and why Nagasaki was bombed as an atomic target. I highly recommend visitors interested in the atomic bombed cities to visit both museums to make their own comparison and judgments on how history could be manipulated...

Great learning experience with detailed explanation on effects of atomic bomb, and the importance of not using such a dangerous weapon. A must visit.

The museum is extremely well presented (given the subject) with information well set out and well presented. Information is provided in English and easy to understand.

We were fortunate to observe a picture show reading when we visited which was a bonus.

Suggest a good couple of hours is required to take everything in.
