You can see the tip of the dome at the memorial museum and this is one of the stops that the trams goes to (gembaku dome mae), so it is quite easy to get here. The building looks sturdy even though most of it has fallen apart and you can see the singed bricks on the inside as you walk... More

It was quite a site to take in... but worthwhile to visit and learn more on what happened then. Then do a short walk to the museum. It will take a good 3 hours altogether if you would like to take it slow and read everything. Good history lesson but saddened after the visit though...

Tip - Atomic Bomb Dome is free to visit yet when we researched it on trip advisor it was showing a $135 fee. After... More

This is the fist building you will see if you are coming from the river entrance. There is an old gentleman next to the dome with folders in every language explaining what happen and the repercussions of that day his mother is a survivor from the bomb. He is an advocate for peace and you can have a nice conversation... More

While in Hiroshima on business in April of 2016, I took the time to come to this monument. No matter how you view the historical conflict that gave rise to this monument, it is still a solemn experience to stand where so many died in one instance.

Seeing the ruin of this building brought the vision to us of the day the bomb was dropped. There are plaques there in English to help us understand what we are seeing.

I do not know how to describe this attraction. I am reluctant to say positive things regarding it due to its nature, but ti was incredible to see in person and really makes you consider the place war has in our world.

When you come out of the museum, you might as well walk the entire park. This building is the only piece of property left from the atomic bombing. This building sits in the park along the river.

This is what's left of the Exhibition Hall after the A-Bomb was dropped. It is now a memorial to those who died.
