  • Get tram, then escalators to the top of the hill and walk around the "bomb site". Nice quiet place, few monuments n' all a bit unreal (check photos of before and after the "bomb" went off).  more »
  • This small park site between the Bomb Museum and the Peace Park. We actually visited this first which I think worked well as a bit of a lead in to our visit to the area.  more »
