History Museum
Reflect on the horrors of nuclear warfare at Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum, located next door to the national memorial for victims of the bombings. The museum allows visitors to gain a deeper understanding of the history of the atomic bomb and its devastating immediate and long-term effects on the city. A major exhibit displays images of Nagasaki as it appeared before the bomb fell on August 9, 1945. Look for the clock hauntingly stopped at 11:02, the moment the bomb was dropped. Put Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Nagasaki tour planner.

  • There's so much information here and it's very well laid out. For a subject matter which this museum is for, everything perfectly presented. Highly recommend.
  • Sobering. Educational, very affordable. A must see. Spend 2hrs at least
  • It reminds us all what the US did wrong and, more importantly the misuse of their supower power. This place has tremendously led to peace building initiative on a global scale. We should all Unite against evil of Nuclear Weapons and power
  • Amazing. Very moving. Great account of what happened that fatal day and also the events leading up to it and following it. Can easily spend 4 hours here. You have to visit this when in Nagasaki!
  • Spent several hours listening to the audio and followed the route. Listening the recording and relating to the photographs, exudes a eerie feeling of sadness. A good place to spent a few hours.
