Hiroshima has the unfortunate and dubious distinction of being the first city in history to be devastated by an atomic bomb. 70,000 people lost their lives immediately with another 70,000 people succumbing to the effects of radiation in years after. The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park...More

When I was there, the main block was closed for renovation. The temporal exhibition in a side wing is still open, and does a very good job of telling the atomic bomb story. Great English write-ups. Trigger alert, though; there was one exhibition on the...More

Although the main museum is under renovation, the remaining exhibit is excellent. The audio guide was slightly disappointing as it mostly just read out what was written on the boards without adding much value- if you can read it’s probably not worth it

A solemn reminder of the destruction a nuclear bomb reeks on its target especially when the bombs today are up to over 3000X more powerful. Visiting the Museum is a very moving experience and a reminder of how each of us has a role to...More

The museum depicts pretty well (although I'm sure it's not even close) the horror that happened that time. It is very heartbreaking to see the damage the bomb has caused.

I have finally come back here since 2005 and it still is very sad experience coming here. Unfortunately the main building is under construction so we were only able to see a small section of the museum. Entry to the museum is only 200 yen...More

Excellent museum, with a very sad subject dealt with sensitively. A moving selection of photos and artifacts, with captions/commentary in Japanese and English.
