The museum has undergone some renovations and become much more high tech. This has just added to the experience (I have visited twice before the renovations). Once you have completed the top floor, make sure you spend time on the ground floor taking in the stories of those who experienced the bombing. It is a humbling, moving experience which really...

The museum was very insightful and provides a large selections of displays, photo's and videos about the event itself and life after the blast. To really see the museum i would recommend at least a couple... More

It's a most important place one has to see and visit bin one's life time as it shows the devastating effects of A bomb . It is very touching to see how people got killed by the bomb in 1945 during the second world war. The importance of living in peace is known on visiting this place

The Memorial Museum is truly well done. It gives detailed information of what nuclear power is, how it's been created and developed, its uses for war, its effets etc. After reading the first floor, you'll wonder why on earth some countries have nuclear weapons! It also gives detailed information of what happened in Hiroshima, people's stories and some of the... More

The museum is magnificent. You will be moved to tears by some of the videos that they will show you. The interviews with the people who experienced it all in 1945 were so moving. Really a must visit.

A moving and emotional visit. Time to wonder through exhibits showing Hiroshima before and after the bombing. Difficult to see it through detached eyes it offers poignant views and reminders that we should do all we can to prevent a repeat atrocity. all visitors seemed to be respectful and moved by all that we saw.

The museum have great collections of photos of Hiroshima before and after the bombing. It was a great learning experienced reading and looking at the photos of how it all started and how it all ended.
