We took the light rail train and went to this museum on a very rainy day, just two days before the deadly mud slide that killed over 100 people in the area. We used the locker to put away our backpacks and we started on...More

Spent a few hours here and you will need it too. A ghastly point in the history of the world but I believe the Japanese have skipped the fact on why this happened and what the alternatives of this happening were. That being said, the...More

For me the highlight was the video montage of survivors describing their awful experiences. It was very moving and interesting. Overall I thought the exhibits were weak nothing like the museums that exist in the US or London. The most depressing thing was the propagandistic...More

One moment you're looking at the happy faces of families in 1940's Hiroshima, you walk through a door and you are hit in the face with a diarama that depicts the utter devastation after the explosion. It stopped us in our tracks while we processed...More

This is the reason most people come to Hiroshima, to witness first hand the atrocities of war. The main building is currently under renovation, and the side building is pretty small/very crowded but none of that matters. The exhibits speaks volumes, not a museum you...More

The main building that usually houses the museum is currently undergoing renovation so everything has been moved to a smaller building. That said the presentation is excellent and you should allow plenty of time to take in the story and artifacts. Make time for the...More

Although the main portion of the museum is under construction to make it more earthquake proof, they moved some of the exhibits from the main museum over to the smaller building. It was a terrific tour with very informative displays. There is one 3D model...More

There is a lot to take in and a lot to reflect on. The video interviews with survivors is something that you could watch for hours as it is something that would probably never reach western shores. The audio guide essentially reads the plaques to...More

I’ve been to Pearl Harbor museum and wanted to see this place. The museum is small, entrance was like $2.00 for adults and it’s main focus was to show the devastating power of the atomic bomb. It is heartbreaking to see the pictures of children,...More

How do you begin to try and decide what to put in a museum that documents a tragic and horrifying event? We spent about 1 hour here and saw a mix of personal accounts (on video), artefacts (clothes, children's toys), details about the bomb and...More

A tourist bus just outside the station will take you there. And if you have a valid JR pass, then the tide is free 🇯🇵

I would say definitely the museum and a walk in the peace park and, depending on your views, you may find something in the ruined hospital at the A-Bomb site. It wasn't for me though! There are some nice tranquil parks and... More
