Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum, Nagasaki

4.5
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.

  • Every person should be aware of the power and devastation that mankind is capable of subjecting others to. Very deep.  more »
  • You can learn the history of the past compared to Hiroshima, a bit small but I think should go once. A little away from the Center, a little uncomfortable.

  • Once again the tragedy of war, feeling, and thinking. This museum, though annoying high school students on a school trip! There's so much! Ago learning to come I want. Also, also teacher of the lead firm note. This is absolutely necessary in young people shoulder the future from this museum.

  • The museum is near the Peace Park and the site of the explosion. The entrance to the museum is on a hill accessible by a couple flights of stair or the elevator on the side of the hill. There is an admission charge to the museum. The museum is a two level building. There are pictures, exhibits and plaques of period time before and after the Atomic Bomb exploded.
  • This museum and the adjacent peace park pair for a nice 2-3 hour trip. Lots of good information presented well, cheap entry fee, convenient location. Obviously chilling content but tastefully done.
  • I fully agree. Despite Nagasaki is less beautiful than Hiroshima, the museum has a great sense because of less people (very few indeed). Thus you can really feel all the feeling, the sadness and the importance of that place. I strongly suggest to visit it to understand what happened there trying to understand how this has completely change the world.
  • Lots of information in English and a lot to think about. Especially good to visit now while Hiroshima’s is closed for refurbishment. It’s slightly lacking in human stories and focuses more on the timeline, objects and environmental aspects.
  • U may skip it if u are tight on time. Not much background abt hw it happened. Relatively small size museum and incomplete history telling. Good to stroll around the peace park though.
