Good place to see what happened during the atomic bombing of Nagasaki. Various exhibits displays the horrors of the radiation blast.

The museum covers the history of the atomic bomb in great detail that it is really painful. I must say that I have changed my opinions on many things after visiting the museum and will encourage everyone that goes to Nagasaki to make some time and visit because it is a very enriching experience.

Worth a visit. Heart wrenching and humbling. Prepare to cry, serious load of tear causing information. Beautiful presentation and friendly staff (knowledgable too).

All around great perspective after visiting this site. They should hold a G8 meeting here! Easy to navigate, though signage for the other attractions leaving from the Museum could be better, took a bit of hit or miss walking to find the right ways around.

We were fortunate enough to be escorted through this museum by a staff member, who merely wanted to practise his English. He explained so much that could not have been seen by the average visitor. The museum rivals Hiroshima, but the personal contact made the experience so much worthwhile.

While there is such sadness and horror pictured in this museum and memorial one can only also reflect & should equally remember on the events leading up to this, the hundreds of thousands killed and tortured by the Japanese, their surrender refusals, and warnings ignored, that led up to this event in order to stop their slaughter of their own...

Worth a visit, especially to convince yourself that war is something that countries should not spend money on. Heart wrenching and humbling. Shocking to see at what cost and to what extent people will go to
