It's a chilling story of the heart wrenching atomic bomb which was Hiroshimas horror story. The care and detailing which has gone into the preservation of the memory deserves a salute ! One must try folding a paper crane there and there are people ready to help you. Guided tours for the adjoining peace park are available .

When we went, the museum had a very nice collection of classical pieces on exhibit - Picasso, Rodin, Monet, etc. the permanent exhibit was nice and light and worth a look - I particularly liked the Japanese art section. We spent about 2-3 hours, including a very decent coffee next to the souvenir shop

This is well worth a quick scoot around. There are some important pieces in here, and the design of museum allows you to take them all in easily within an hour. Do this rather than go inside the castle.

we are avid museum goers and our visit here came at the end of a long day and day trip. It was almost an afterthought and we had less than an hour to view the collection. The permanent collection is mostly Western, post-impressionist art including work by artists we know and love, but work unfamiliar to us. The biggest surprise... More

We visited several art museums while in Hiroshima. I was stunned by the number of works by Picasso, Chagall, Latrec and many of the other well know painters.
