“Somber”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

The construction of this hall is very well done, taking one underground. Fortunately the display is small as most people will not want to spend too much time reading about the horrors of nuclear war. The presentation is excellent. There is no charge so you don't have to worry about leaving quickly if it is too much of a downer for you.

“A Place to Mourn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

A very startling place to think about the individuals who died in Hiroshima. The relatives of those who died must find it of comfort and it is thght provoking for those from other countries visiting to think of the numers who died.

“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.
