The museum told the stories of many people who were hurt or killed in the atomic blast in 1945. Their attitude seems to be that the residents of Hiroshima were the only ones hurt in all of WWII. And they seem to have forgotten that they "invited" the US into the war by bombing Pearl Harbor. Or that days before... More

Amazing place to pay respects and the contemplate our own fragile mortality. So many lost in an instant and so many more suffered. Make sure to include this after your visit to the main museum.

I wasn't particularly looking forward to visiting the museum because I thought it may be too graphic & too upsetting. However my husband was very keen to visit & I am glad that I did. It has a lot of interesting information & is obviously very emotional but because it is very factual without much personal detail it wasn't overly... More

Located at the Southern end of the Hiroshima Memorial Peace Park, this museum houses items from the survivors of the atomic bomb blast that levelled the city on August 6th, 1945. As well as physical items, survivors have provided accounts of their experiences during and after the blast. These are supplemented by audiovisual displays that show how the blast occurred... More

I would highly recommend visitors to drop by the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. There are great locations such as the benches along the rivers where excellent photographs can be captured. However, I would say the most important thing to do is to unravel the history.... this would definitely value-add your trip and make it a more meaningful one. Excellent!

A superb museum though leave you with a chill. The most impressive part for me is a circular map of Hiroshima before the blast then the blast occurres and when it clears you see the devastation. Maybe get a few of the world leaders around this and explain to them what's the point we would all be dead in a... More

Of course if you visit this city, this museum is what you come to visit. The city has dedicated itself to promoting peace, yet again it is due to the bombing, and to see the Dome (one of 2 bldgs in the city which are pre-WWII) is very moving in itself. However the museum highlights the experience of the affected... More

Wonderful place we weren't sure about the long journey here but well worth the visit. Children were singing in the garden today. Make your own mind up about the reasons behind all this - lots of historical evidence.

This museum does a service for the world in remembering the bomb and its victims. You can while a way a thoughtful number of hours here and then reflect further in the beautiful park hat surrounds the museum.
