“For me the most moving part of the park”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

This memorial puts names and faces to the mass destruction, death and tragedy. It can be difficult to walk through but the central hall balances out the other sections with its large 360 degree display of the physical damage.

“Incredible insight into the destruction of Hiroshima”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

I highly recommend this museum, especially if you are into the WWII period. This museum gives you an excellent insight into the atrocities and total destruction of a rather large area of Hiroshima, as well as the massive power of atomic weaponry. This museum gives you an idea of what it was like to live in post 'apocalyptic' Hiroshima, especially for the few years after the bomb was dropped.

“A touching place”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

I found this place amazing, but at the same time, very, very sad. You are able to search for people who were in the city of Hiroshima at the time of the bomb and read about their stories. I found myself wiping away many tears, but it was something I believe everyone should experience.

“Touching!”
Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

Of all the memorial sites, this is the most touching.

In the basement you see a wall mosaique consisting of 140'000 elements (the number of people that died due to the A-bomb).

On the way out you can read and hear the very emotional stories of people that experienced the drop of the bomb and the suffering and despair of the survivors. - Very touching!

“Sophisticated Memorial”
Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

Very elegantly, as well as very crisply modern designed memorial dedicated to the people killed in the Hiroshima A bomb attack. I went in the evening, and there was hardly anyone there, which added to the experience of it all. Haunting and beautiful architecture.
