This had a lot of information about various aspects of the bombing. It was well-presented - I think better than the Hiroshima Museum. The surviving remains of a clock, stopped at 11.02, sit by the entrance. It explains nuclear fission and how it affects us today.The Arms Race of various countries is displayed, showing the Russian and American stockpiles as... More

We visited the Atomic Bomb Museum after our visit to Peace Park . It is about a 10 minute walk to the museum . The museum is quite crowded and you must be patient with the crowd which will move slowly . The museum tells the story about the bombing including graphic pictures of burn victims and survivors so you... More

Everyone who visits Nagasaki must come to this Museum. It was solemn and profound. By chance we were there at 11am and the museum plays a music piece at this time to commemorate the dropping of the bomb at 11:02am August 9, 1945. May it be the last.

Really beautiful museum, that is - even though it is a very sad subject - absolutely a must when you go to Nagasaki. These events had such a big impact on the whole world, and the museum tells this story very well.

This museum touches you, the story and the effect of the a-bomb. All the pictures... And also how much a-bombs we have today. Recommend to stop by the peace park / ground zero after your visit.

The Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum is a place that must be visited if one is a visitor to Nagasaki. The experience of what the museum has to offer is exceptional. The museum is well laid out with many photographs and objects to explain the lead up to the dropping of the bomb and the aftermath and horrors post the explosion.... More

All Japanese schoolchildren must visit either Hiroshima or Nagasaki during their school years, and I would say that any visitor to Japan should do their best to visit at least one of these two cities too. As the only places in the world to have experienced an atomic bomb attack, places like this museum are incredibly important reminders of the... More

Ground Zero and Atomic Bomb Museum The second city to experience an atomic attack, interestingly Nagasaki was not on the original target list, and was only the secondary target on the fateful morning of August 8, 1945. At Ground Zero, which is on the grounds of the Atomic Bomb Museum, you will find two monuments and some evidence of the... More
