Loved it! Spacious and very well curated. Not filled with extra "stuff". Loved the 3D circular example of what that day must have been like- was totally amazing! Something Hiroshima can be proud of!

Actually, the main building is closed for earthquake renovation until July 2018. I was able to enter the side building which has several exhibits from the explosion. Well worth ahving a look!

The main building is just being renovated but the exhibition about the atomic bomb, its history and the horrible effects of its use are a must see for anybody visiting Japan.
