Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum, Nagasaki
(4.5/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The Museum is very moving and leads one of the horror on the ground in front. Even if you have seen already several reports in books or TV. To see the exhibits of this disaster, it is difficult to cope with.

  • Smaller than Hiroshima's Atomic bomb museum but well done and informative. Nice to see the present state of nuclear weapons across the world clearly outlined. 
  • I would guess that all western visitors to Nagasaki do so because of the atomic bomb dropped on it during the war. The museum is well worth the visit. We are travelling with a group of friends and we ...  more »

  • This is an incredible place and much more interesting than the one in Hiroshima. I highly recommend travelers visit this wonderful museum. It covers the atomic bombing in great detail without bias...hard to do. It covers a specific subject (the atomic bombing) better than any museum I've ever visited. I'm 78 years old and remember the bombing and this is the best exhibition of the outcome I've ever seen.
  • This museum obvious should not Be existing Today but... history can't be changed. This museum fells the story off the Nagasaki Atomic bombing but allso educateus about nucliair warfare in General. Very educating and intresting. Also made me feel humble because the museum fells personaliseren Stories of the Lives that were taken.
  • Loved the area and the park spread out over a large area. In my opinion nicer than Hiroshima. I didn't go into the paid museum but I went into the free one. The volunteers running the exhibits were extremely friendly and polite especially considering I'm an American visiting. I hope to go back again and visit the paid museum as well and see more of the landmarks in the park areas.
  • I am impressed with the exhibits. I feel sorry for the disaster that Japanese beard. It makes me feel the preciousness of peace. I think that the government should receive free of charge for this sight. It is not suitable to charge with this kind of museum.
  • Important landmark. Only $2 USD to get in. Painful but important lesson for all.
