A must see

At least once in your life, visit this place. Small fee for the museum, but worth it. Really makes you think about humanity.

Our tour guide tells us that they debated whether to leave this building standing when the rebuilt the city after the atrocity of the atomic bomb in 1945. They made the right decision to let it stand as it sends a strong message.

This shattered building is an amazing sight, appreciating the horror Hiroshima experienced, the terrible losses, and that this sight is today a memorial and monument for peace. You can walk around it, see its scars relatively close from different angles. See this and then wander the park before going to the museum. Tip: if you hold a JR rail pads... More

The building that the atomic bomb detonated over still stands as a memorial and is part of the peace park in the center of Hiroshima. A walk around the Peace Park visiting all of the sights and memorials is recommended though it can be very hot and humid.

Great to have a quiet wonder round this famous landmark. Plenty of signs giving information. Attended on a rainy day so made it even more moody.

A visible landmark of man's inhumanity to man, my first sight of the atomic dome really shocked me. This preserved building is a visible reminder of the atomic atrocity that all but raised Hiroshima to the ground.

One of those places that every human being should visit at least once in life, to understand the mistakes made in the past, the epicenter of one of the key events of the twentieth century and an overwhelming testimony of a fact that will never be repeated, I think the visit is mandatory and is the best act to honor...

I cant exactly describe the feeling you get when you see this place- its thought provoking and so many mixed emotions is stirred. I loved how the Flame of Peace and Peace Monuement is built in lined with the Dome. It touches you in the right places even the Children Peace Monuement will stir you. I also recommend the Peace...

The dome was under renovation while I was there and it was quite rainy, however it still didn't take away from the powerful emotions invoked by the location. A genuine mood killer, however it is totally worth visiting. I hopped on a bullet train in the morning from Kyoto and took a rail car from Hiroshima Station. I was back... More

While walking we didn't realize we were at the dome until we suddenly saw it. My first impression was how quiet everyone was observing the dome. Really no words to describe it. A must see. A simple walk over a bridge from the Peace Memorial.
