We visited the museum without any preconceived ideas on what we'd see or feel but walked out feeling very somber but also peaceful. Not sure if this was the calm feeling after the many many years of pain and suffering experience by the locals. Well...More

The experience was humbling and emotion provoking. It was great to see Japanese kids on school excursions and having moments of silence. The museum was quite amazing, too.

While my mom and dad experienced the horrors and hardships of war, we revisit the place to remember that devastating history and to give thanks that our generation have learned from them and carried on living this life.

This museum is not a great place for children. The images and artifacts are important, relevant, and leave a strong impression. The museum is worth you time as a traveler, but will be a little too much for children
