An unbelievable exhibition showing the horrors of war and the devastation of an atomic bomb which killed over 70,000 innocent people, with more dying from the effects of radiation many years later. There will never be agreement on whether this action should be taken, however,...More

You cannot say it was a great visit, atomic bombs should not be allowed. However it accurately depicts the horror of and following 9 August 1945.

Too far to walk. You can do it by tram but you will need to change. Taxi is easier.
