This is a peaceful and very sobering memorial that reminds us all that there are greater consequences in war and that there are always innocent casualties.

If you go to Nagasaki, you need to visit this. Like Hiroshima's, the museum is dedicated to the concept of a nuclear-free peace. The aftermath of the bomb is covered without getting too gory about it. There are heartfelt personal accounts on video to watch.

I was a bit disappointed that the timelines didn't mention Pearl Harbor, since IMHO, PH was the reason that Nagasaki and Hiroshima made it into the history books. It was pointed out to me (by my daughter) that the museums were not there to point fingers, but to remind people that atomic weapons are not to be taken lightly.

If you go here after the museum and the park you may feel as we did a bit on overload. It is still worth the time as it is a real architectural marvel.
