You should go to have the Japanese perspective of the WW2. The information they provided was very one-sided though. It said nothing about the sufferings and unimaginable tortures Japan inflicted on other countries. It’s however worth going as it’s informative and it does show you...More

A moving experience. The exhibits are well-thought out and contribute to your understanding of what happened. Go early in the morning before it gets too crowded. Should be a required visit for everyone.

We took a few hours to walk through this museum - the English audio was helpful. It was all very thought provoking.

This is not a "beautiful" museum, it's not its purpose. It must inform on the history, the consequences and the pain suffered by the people as a result of the nuclear bombing. It must give something to think about, it must make everyone feel involved...More

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.
