Visited here today and although there is some very upsetting material in the museum it is a wonderfully put together memorial to the victims and survivors of the atomic bomb. All signs are available in English and Japanese and I think there was audio options...More

The Museum is isn’t huge, housed in a simple building, but it has lots of exhibits about Hiroshima and the dropping of the atomic bombs. It’s a chilling reminder about the devestating effects of nuclear weapons. A walk around the park to the Atomic Bomb...More

A detailed museum telling the story of the Hiroshima a-bomb, the city, the survivors and the victims. A must-see in hiroshima. The main building is, however, under maintenance at the moment, but the exhibition is worthwhile and extensive enough anyways.
