If you only have a few hours in Nagasaki, you have to visit this place. It's a piece of history that will make you understand the pain and suffering of the Japanese during those times. They have tons of pictures, actual footages, items that were damaged during the bombing. They show you the extent of damage of the atomic bomb.... More

It's a great museum first off. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Nagasaki is not really a great city to go to imo but this museum makes it worth visiting. It's one of those quiet and somber museums that has actual artifacts from the bombing and some can be touched such as scorched roof tiles. There are many clocks that survived the... More

I liked to hear & see more about the details of the atomic bomb which was thrown on this city. Not enough details in English language~

I went to Hiroshima about 10 years ago and after back and forth Japan regarding to my work, I had a spare time to see Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum that I really wanted to go since long time ago. I went to Nagasaki because of the museum, nothing else. I asked my dad and younger brother to know more about... More

An absolute must if you are visiting Nagasaki. A truly haunting reminder of the past and possibly the future too. You will leave feeling exhausted.

There is parking available until 7pm. The entrance fee is $2 pp. The museum is quite interesting and most part of the info is in English. It gives a very somber but realistic account of the events in the day and after the atomic explosion in Nagasaki. Don't miss the memorial.

The Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum is a very power museum that tells the sad story of the dropping of the first atomic bomb and its aftermath on the citizens of Nagasaki. When you enter the museum walk down the spiral hallway to where you purchase tickets. The woman when you first walk in the door only knows the phrase "please... More

Other Americans had recommended the Hiroshima museum as being a fairer account of the atomic bombing of 1945 than this one, but we were traveling in the Nagasaki area so decided to visit this museum. We were moved by the exhibits and testimonials describing the horrific effects of these devastating weapons. Artifacts like a school child's burned lunchbox recreate the... More

This museum conjures up sobering thoughts and gives a very real insight to that dreadful day, everyone should pay a visit as not only to pay homage to those that perished but also see the outcome and hopefully we'll never see it again. Don't forget to walk down to the hypocentre

It is quite difficult to write a review because of what the museum is all about. It is well worth a visit to see what happened and try to comprehend. To see the replica bomb was I bit odd for me knowing what it caused. It is a must visit but not to celebrate but to acknowledge a part of... More
