Last building standing after the explosion. Itnshows the power of the bomb and it overlooks the river. You can't go inside but it's a nice picture spot for the entire area.

It is in an open park so it is always open. The whole park has various places within it, one site being the Atomic Bomb some. the museums keep open and closing hours. Hope this helps.
