Nagasaki National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims is a commemorative monument in Nagasaki, Japan, situated next to its Atomic Bomb Museum. The Peace Park is nearby. Like its counterpart in Hiroshima, the hall was constructed as a place to remember and pray for those killed by the 1945 atomic bombing, with photos, and memoirs and personal accounts of the event. It also offers information on international co-operation and exchange activities concerning medical treatment for sufferers of nuclear accidents.
This place is definitely worth visiting. Very informative, touching and unique. Even if you have been to the museum in Hiroshima this one is very different and worth a visit. You could spend an entire day in there reading and watching videos.
