The memorial has been constructed to remind everybody of the A-bomb disaster of the city of Hiroshima. Undoubtedly an tragic event the world has to remember.The place has to pass the message and assure that such a weapon will never be used again. At the same time, I felt that the memorial is too much of a museum and too... More

My initial concern with the museum is that it goes on only one direction. If there were a fire there's only one way to go, and it was very crowded initially before the bottleneck opened a bit. The information was very impactful and educational as it discussed power released by and biological effects of nuclear fusion.

Obviously, a very moving place, but one that promotes tolerance, peace and the hope that those that we elect as our leaders can one day wake up to the madness of sustaining nuclear weapons.

The tour guide we had was very informative and a survivor of the bombing. We toured the grounds started at the dome. Walked over the bridge. The information given at these sights was both disturbing and a reminder of what war can do. The children's memorial with sadako was a highlight. The museum was being redone but the artifacts they...

We visited the museum to get out of the pouring rain and while it was interesting, it was also incredibly overcrowded. There are other things to do in Hiroshima, you can give this a miss.

The museum definitely tells us what happened to the city, surroundings and people on the devastating day in 1945, which hopefully never is repeated. I just think there was done too much to scare and frighten the guests, and the building itself is not my taste either. Nevertheless, do go there!

Words cannot really describe your feeling walking round this museum and learning about the horror of 6 August 1945. Knowing you are standing near the detonation site where mass destruction occurred in a matter of seconds is quite unnerving. It is a feeling you cannot really appreciate until you are there. The museum is incredibly informative, the exhibits are plentiful... More

Very cheap entry at 200 yen a person, busy museum but really interesting and has some mind blowing displays. Worth battling through all the people to see it and learn more about the bombing and its effects

Gets home the reality of nuclear war. The museum is well laid out and geared up for English speaking travellers.

The Atomic Dome, Peace Memorial Park and Museum are a stark reminder of how lethal and devastating a weapon of war can be. What happened as a consequence is very clear. Why this weapon was used was not made clear. History is sanitised. Knowing that at least 300,000 souls were lost was but a small number in comparison to the... More
