My wife and I visited this museum with a local guide that we were put in touch with by the local tourist organisation. The guide was a retired local lady that had been an english teacher and had excellent english and was very knowledgable, she was also Chairperson of the Peace Wing of Nagasaki.
She took us to this museum after we arrived at the Port of Nagasaki on a cruise ship and was able to give us a very detailed history of Nagasaki together with an interesting tour of the museum.
She was clearly moved by some of the exhibits and photographs that were on display, as were we and this together with her local knowledge gave us a unique insight into what has happened since the bomb.
The museum is well laid out and has some very interesting artefacts including a replica of the bomb that was dropped and it is not until you see this that you realise the damage that can be done by a such a small bomb. The building consists of both permanent and special exhibition rooms, bookshop, Conference Hall, Peace Study Rooms a Library and Tearoom. There are audio guides also available.
There are some exhibits in the museum that were removed from their original sites and placed here to show the destructive power of the bomb.
A very interesting museum which is a must see if you are in Nagasaki.
