It's a very sad tale, but if you take time to read about Sadako Sasaki and all the other children who died as a result fo the bomb, it's an especially powerful place to visit. (There is plenty further information about Sadako and many others in the mueum, a few minutes' walk away.) The monument itself is quite beautiful, and located where it is in the park, it has echoes of all the other deaths caused by the bomb... yet the bell to ring and all the paper cranes around it seem to hold a message of hope for the future. A hauntingly sad place to visit, but definitely should be visited.
