“A must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

The Hiroshima National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims was next, and is a very touching monument – it’s underground, with flowing water echoing inside it from the fountain above ground. You don't need long to see it and it's free. I'd head here after the museum for a nice end to your experience.

“So very sad and moving”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 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.
