This has a quiet, contemplative atmosphere focusing on the victims of the bomb. Free entry and only took us 15 minutes (although you could spend a awful lot longer there). Worth a visit.

This place should make you cry. So many people died in an instant. Has a small theatre where stories of survivors are told of the minutes hours after the blast. Excellent and is a must see to reflect. We were in the main hall at 11am on the 11th. Sort of personal tribute.

Must go into Memorial Hall when you're visiting. Entrance is to the right of the Cenotaph. A lot of information and videos shown inside.

The Hall is in the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. The hall curators have collected atomic bomb memories and stories from the survivors of the bombing that are displayed with names and photographs of victims. There is no entry fee, and a lift for the disabled. No photography permitted inside the premises.

This well designed memorial has a modest but provocative above ground presence. Walk down the steps and enter an informative and contemplative space. This is a good place to slow down and really think about it.

Loved Hiroshima and when in this place had time to reflect on a bad time in human history. There are many tiles arranged that show a devastated city after the A-bomb was dropped. Each tile represented a life lost and when you look at it, there is a lot. Very emotional, but a must do in Hiroshima.

Big big chambers filled with the names of all the people that died. A very humbling and somber experience.
We took our 1 year old who decided it was a great place to scream in delight as it echoed. Thankfully people in Japan are very understanding as we rushed her out the door! Wish we could have stayed longer

Quite interesting to walk through this memorial and to see the faces of those who died. They were also showing some videos of people remembering loved ones and what they were doing on the day the bomb dropped. An important reminder of the impact of war on the ordinary people.

An elegant building that tells stories of the life of victims...a very human rendering. This is at the entry to the Peace Park.
