“Very informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

informative, interesting, well presented and located near the park for ease of access. We enjoyed the exhibition. The only downside was how busy the museum was.

“A Must-Visit in Hiroshima”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

The entrance fee was very affordable. All of us enjoyed the museum and it taught us a lot about the Hiroshima bombing. We didn't finish the museum on time and had to rush thru the last few exhibitions as we did not have enough time and the museum was closing.

“A Beautiful and Peaceful Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

For the small token entry fee, we were able to visit one of the most moving museums in the world. The history is moving and you learn so much about what Hiroshima did to become the place it is today. There are artifacts that will make you think and make you experience the day. Let's hope that another place in the world never has to build something like this again.

“Interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

I enjoyed seeing this memorial. It reminded me that the horrors of war cannot be understated. Certainly it gives you a sense of the long term consiquences of atomic power being unleashed
