Kind of scary but sobering. The world leaders should go here. A lot to see and especially good for history buffs. Long lines of school kids. Note that half of the Museum is closed for renovations but the part that is open is fantastic

We were disappointed that the museum was partially closed for renovation. What was open to visitors was still impressive and we enjoyed our visit.

There must be no memorials anywhere more important than this one. In an undramatic and maybe even 'low key' way this carefully chosen combination of photographs, script, quotations and other media, the memorial demonstrates very well the horror, tragedy and stupidity of mass destruction in...More
