Came here hoping to learn more of the devastating event. Wasn't disappointed and walked away learning a lot. Though there weren't a lot of English descriptions. The images on display were enough for one to understand. A Must come if one is in Nagasaki.

This museum is amazing giving you a real insight into the tragedy of the nuclear bomb. Combined with visiting the nearby Peace Park this is a must see although emotional.

A bit more relaxed than Hiroshima with less people but just as harrowing . And why a second bomb ? Museum well designed . Lots of videos and info . Take a few hours and go to memorial hall as well - it's free . It's 200 yen to get in but had 50 percent discount from the hostel card... More

There's no doubt about it, if you are visiting Nagasaki, you must go here. It is very well done, with lots of details and first hand accounts of what happened the day the bomb dropped in Nagasaki. It has all the info on what happened leading up to it and what has happened since. I'm not going to lie, some... More

In this museum, you will see a detail account on the human toll and suffering caused by the atomic bomb. What gave me a lasting impression was not the gruesome images caused by the atomic bomb. Instead, it was the unbiased stance that museum has taken. It airs an interview with an Australian POW in Nagasaki when the bomb was... More

Upon entrance to the museum skip the line & buy your entrance ticket from the Kiosk machine. Press English & follow directions. Entrance fee 200 yen (about $2US).Follow the winding ramp down, with years marked on the wall, like you are walking back in time to Aug 9, 1945 11:02 AM. A very well done & informative museum.

It's an important reminder of a horrific event and it's very sobering. Not sure that I would have chosen to visit but it was part of our tour and it's important to see how decisions made can destroy thousands upon thousands for generations.

It's a place where one can discover - if needed again - how war can lead to such atrocities that leaves us cherishing the recent years the civilized world has spent without major conflict, and being worried about the combats still happening in many countries and even the potential disputes between "good" and "evil" nations.

It is a must see when you visit Nagasaki, but to be honest when you also vist Hiroshima you visit also there the museum and that is more spectaculair and making more impression. It is a little bit to much A-Bomb information (my opninion and have nothing todo with respect)

An extremely interesting place, nicely done given the horror of the atomic bomb drop nearby. The exhibits are well arranged and the information given is very good.
