The Peace Memorial Hall is a fitting tribute to those that lost their lives because of the atomic bomb. The Hall of Remembrance provides a 360 degree panorama view of the city as seen from the hypocenter (Shima Hospital) after the dropping of the bomb. The next room after the Hall displays the names and photographs of the atomic bomb victims and you are able to do a search of the victims via several kiosks. Very somber place.

You wind down a curved corridor into the crypt of this befitting memorial. Along the walls are plaques giving a brief history of events ( although some contradictory to others at the museum and definitely to the history I was taught). An apt place to reflect on the futility of war.

The Peace Memorial Hall is a somber place. As you enter you follow a winding path the lists the key events in the Hiroshima bombing and finally enter a large room where you stand surrounded by a 360 degree panorama of Hiroshima after the bombing as well as a graphical depiction of all the neighborhoods affected by the blast. The truly moving part of the visit comes after the ascent back to the ground floor where a loop of interviews with survivors plays repeatedly and computers are available to read the stories of other survivors. The loss, fear, anguish, and hatred are vividly shared and the reader cannot help but be touched by it. Even if you can make it through the Peace Museum without being moved I can nearly guarantee you will be affected by the Peace Hall.

Not the most prominent of the memorials in the Peace Park, you have to go downstairs to the entrance, but definitely should be included in your itinerary. A more contemplative experience than the Museum, but perhaps more meaningful becauser of that.

Very evocative and silent tribute to all victims (known by now) of the A bomb horror.
Above the memorial, outside in a park, a symbolic monument with a clock set at 8.15 when it happened with scattered bricks, glass, iron,,,,all around it.
