This was an intense experience. I am generally a sensitive person, and more or less I cried all the way through the museum. Seeing the results of the atomic bomb up close is completely different to reading about it from afar and I can recommend...More

It was great to see how many japanese school kids there were at age of 6 to 9. They study history, because knowledge is everything... Yes. Fears and tears during our visit, but in a good way. Lot of discussions afterwoods, so go. Now.

A must see! Very powerful to see how the atomic bomb affected the belongs (and the people) of Hiroshima. Got to hear a first hand experience of someone who survived the blast and is still alive today. Do recommend checking out if able!!

Some interesting interviews of survivors of the blast and aftermath. Would have rated higher except for the reconstruction which reduced the number of exhibits.

I went to the museum 18 years ago and it was ok then but this time it felt much better done. One reason is the Museum uses more technology now to illustrate what happened when the bomb was dropped. There is a replication of Hiroshima...More

Nothing to say, just a big and tremandous feeling of horror and sadness. A place to be for remembering A place for hope. The biggest nation did wrong. Stupidity of both is frightening. Hope this century ´ll be better.

Suggest you ask someone (or use Google ruteplanner) which trams you should take from your cruise terminal to the A Dome Memorial / Peace Memorial Museum. Trams in Hiroshima works very well. You get on and pay to the tram... More

The peace park and dome are open to the public -although you can’t physically get into the dome. The entrance fee is for the museum only

It says Spring 2019. The exhibition is now installed in the east building. Would be nice to know how the difference is, once it is open. I already found the temporary version quite well-made.
