This is a free memorial/museum. There were also pamphlets available in multiple languages to explain the symbolism of the memorial. As you are exiting, there is a picture wall of those that died in the blast and a library to find the names. There is also a short film by those who survived. I think it was about 25 minutes....

Such a quiet peaceful place that has come from such great devastation, the pond above includes pieces of buildings that survived the bombing

Tranquil place. This is a must see in Hiroshima. Everyone should visit at least once to remember the awful ugliness of World War II and the Bomb. Also to pay their respects to the people of Japan, who have survived and prospered as good world citizens since then.

this is some where I always wanted to see, you read about it in school it is taught to you from a young age, so when I arrived I thought I had a good understanding of the situation, however what I learnt there hit alot harder being there onsite, this place is best in silence and to remember that photos...

A heart-wrenching experience but nonetheless a must see in Hiroshima. Extensive signage in English walks you through the events of that fatal morning of August 6 1945. Some recovered household items are on display. Well worth a visit (entry fee 100 yen)

Simply sit quietly, look around and reflect on the events and causes that eventually resulted in this place being here.

Speechless. The Children's memorial and the peace park as a whole are a fitting tribute to the innocents who were massacred here and to the dedication and strength of the Japanese people to rebuild. Beautiful place.

I was very pleasantly surprised by how this apparently simple site has been able to communicate such a thoughtful and peaceful message. Highly recommended.

Really impressive. In particular the stories of "the children of Hiroshima" when you're at the entrance/exit (again) are well worth watching all 6 or so.

This is a very cool monument built into the ground, featuring a mosaic tile for each of the approximately 140,000 victims of the bombing. It's very serene and thought provoking
