Certainly worth visiting - entry was free and the facility and central fountain were very nicely done. There's informational tablets, but I think the purpose of the main underground fountain area is meditative.

An underground hall of remembrance which bears the names of the victims is circular so as you stand in the middle you look out at neighborhoods and see the destruction in all directions. It is certainly worth a few tears and a prayer that this will never happen again.

We went the the Hall before the Museum and it gave good information. There is a 15 minute video that recounts a few people's accounts of the before, during and after of the bombing which was insightful. The kids didn't pay close attention but we were all able to sit in comfy seats while watching. After we walked the winding path to the Hall then walked through an area with computers to look up victims which was interesting for my kids to pick a name and look them up. This Hall is free to enter and is located inside the Peace Memorial Park where you see the Museum and Memorials too.

Worth taking some time to visit this site as it is a beautiful memorial to those victims of the bombing. It is a beautifully designed hall paying tribute to the victims. You could miss it as it is tucked away so try and get a map of the park and seek this out as it is really worth experiencing. There is disabled access.
