... never to forget what the worst of humanity can do... a lesson to remember so we can avoid

I am not sure if I would recommend it to very sensitive people, since some images could be very strong.

Moving, informative.... really makes you think. A place that everyone should visit in their life time. Ive read some reviews that say it may be a bit one sided, but we did not feel that, It honestly depicts what happened in the lead up to the bomb and the immediate minutes, hours, days etc.

Spent an entire afternoon there. You can never fully imagine the turmoil that was caused and the horror that these poor people went through unless you visit. Be prepared for a very emotional experience. I walked around there with tears in my eyes for the most part. Read all the information, sound the bell, take a while to fully take in the dome building. Leave the memorial area with a lump in your throat and a renewed wish for world peace. That's what I did anyway.

Like most places that you see in the Peace Park area, this hall is set up to offer its point of view of the atomic bomb. In this case, it is a historical record of the victims atomic bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It does this using both extensive lists of names as well as the voices of those who remembered them, pictures and video. I found the Hall of Remembrance to be very well done and a nice place to sit and think. Admission was free. It can be seen in a short amount of time.

As part of the over all Atomic bomb park it's great. It's peaceful and nice for a good walk around.
