  • This museum is documenting the complete history about impact and situation during atomic bomb in world war II. It was a devastating moment that i couldn’t even imagine. And the museum successfully capture all the moment. With lots of remains evidence/goods/clothes/ruins building being a showcase to remind us of how important peace needed in this world. It surely gave us a chill and bit a goosebumps as well. We can only feel silence in all the museum area. Somehow i felt that the time is stop in there. Memorable but sad at the same time. It’s a must historical site visit in Hiroshima.
  • A moment in history that everyone should see...such a overwhelming feeling coming into Hiroshima knowing the history of what happened and to see it in person words cannot describe it. I took no pictures inside the museum because once you walk thru there it is just silent as your just overwhelmed with emotions from the experience and the artifacts and stories that you see and read. The Park and Hiroshima do an amazing job of showing the reasons that this should never happen again...not about why it happened just that it should never happen again.
