I grew up doing duck and cover drills in school. I've wanted to come to this spot since I was 15 and read about the bomb. This is a surprisingly non-political presentation. It does show Pearl Harbor although it doesn't show a direct link. It...More

Very well laid out. If you have been to the museum in Hiroshima, this is not the same! It is small and graphic, not for the squeamish, but it happened and we should all learn from it, never more so than now!

After visiting Hiroshima previously, we thought we should visit Nagasaki. I'm glad we did. The museum and the impact area are moving. Hopefully there will be no more Atomic Bomb museums to visit.

The photos, the victims accounts, then where we stand today in terms of the threat of nuclear warfare. Heart wrenching, eye opening and scary

We made a special effort to visit this museum as it is a reminder to all mankind what a devastating world we would have if someone was to be so stupid to ignite another. If children of the world were made to see the horrors...More

This is a fascinating museum as it shows the war from the Japanese side. There are plenty of interesting artefacts on display along with video footage. If visiting it is a must see museum.

My wife and I spent a hot August summer day in the Atomic Bomb Museum. The museum is a commemoration of the unfortunate event when the US unlatched the atomic bomb on the city of Nagasaki on Aug 9, 1945 at 11.02am. The exhibits include...More

You just need to go and see this place. There is no real way to describe it on here to do it justice.

Too far to walk. You can do it by tram but you will need to change. Taxi is easier.

I would suggest 2.5-3 hours total is sufficient for the museum. There can be crowds at some exhibits and all are worth viewing, take your time to read the placards presented in several languages. Arrive early if you're in a... More
