“So very sad and moving”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Ironic that one gives 4 stars to a museum that leaves one depressed and grief-stricken upon leaving. However, the visuals, the graffics and the general displays were not as gory as I expected. Perhaps this is intentional so as not to deter the more squeemish. The subject of the museum is totally dedicated to the events and aftermath of August 6th 1945. I was not aware of any reference to the war during that time which Japan naturally had a major role in, and a significant contributor to war attrocities.

“Tear jerker”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

So much history and the great wish for peace - the whole Peace Park is such an inspiration and the Memorial Hall is such a moving experience.
