The museum is brilliant. It really brings home the terrible effects of nuclear bombs. I would insist all politicians are made to visit it to make sure the extremely important lessons of the dropping of the atom bomb are learnt and never repeated. Very well...More

This is a place you must go to when you visit Hiroshima. It is very crowded from 10:00 to 15:00. Full of students on school excursions. It is recommended to go to 8:30 or 16:00. Don't forget Please look at the exhibition room on the...More

A truly moving presentation. Very balanced, so as not to vilify either party, but just to present how it happened, the suffering that resulted, and the commitment to non-proliferation that follows. Plan to spend at least an hour as the displays take a long time...More

A well laid out museum that although it shows graphic details it puts it across in a very sobering manner. Yes it helped end a war but the human losses and the pain involved long term make you ask was it the best way .

The photos and exhibits in this museum can break your heart. It's overwhelming but so effectively presented. The images will linger in my mind for many years to come....

Suggest you ask someone (or use Google ruteplanner) which trams you should take from your cruise terminal to the A Dome Memorial / Peace Memorial Museum. Trams in Hiroshima works very well. You get on and pay to the tram... More

It says Spring 2019. The exhibition is now installed in the east building. Would be nice to know how the difference is, once it is open. I already found the temporary version quite well-made.
