Here you go underground and can watch footage of the dropping of the bomb (in English) followed by a walk through a remembrance room dedicated to all the original areas of Hiroshima decimated by the bomb. There is a fountain depicting the time of 8.15 when it detonated. Finally you can watch as many incredible videos as you can stand... More

I missed the Memorial Hall the first time I visited Hiroshima, as it's hidden away from the museum and cenotaph. But take the time to stroll a hundred yards, then down the spiral ramp to see the memorial hall. In it's own way, it's as moving as the cenotaph or the museum.

The Memorial Hall is set within the grounds of the Peace Park. You go downstairs to enter it. It holds the names of all those known to have died in the A Bomb blast. There is a small cinema playing footage from survivors and the aftermath. There is a facility for relatives to look up family members to see if... More

Located within the memorial park, it is a place mostly overlooked by the big tour groups, which makes it ideal for reflection and gives an appropriate dignified atmosphere to the victims of the atomic bomb. I was especially moved by the personal accounts of the survivors who remind us that war is hell and its devastating cost hits the poor... More

Went to the peace memorial museum first, so had already seen and heard some of the same information. It was therefore a quick visit. Many sad stories here and more quiet than the other museum. 30 minutes trip is enough.

They have a lot of displays on ground zero and where the first a bomb was let off in anger - lucky for us it has not happened again- nice display here

From the clock above the Memorial that indicates the time of 8.15, to the tiles and rubble beneath the clock that are actual remains from the destruction of Hiroshima, to the solemn Slope to the Hall of Remembrance and the actual Hall of Remembrance every feature of this Memorial Hall has been very well thought out and designed.

We just finished visiting the city of Hiroshima. It is wonderful to see it built up into a thriving metropolis. There are water canals everywhere lined with lovely trees and cherry blossoms. The Peace Park is tastefully done and declares Hiroshima to be a "City of Peace". The museum and dome (the remnants of a building near ground zero in... More

The east building of the museum was closed for construction when I visit. You can rent a headphone that has 10+ languages. The explanation and the exhibits are really good and brought us back to the day the atomic bomb exploded and what happened after that. Really good for a visit.

Very moving video presentation exhibit. Our kids 9 and 11 were able to handle it, but we had prepared them for it before the day. It's in the middle of the park so just add it to your day here.
