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.

  • Not as informative as Hiroshima's atomic museum. But since it is a history that every human being should not forget, still worth a visit. The museum is on the hill. Take taxi if you go with elderly.  more »

  • A trip down emotional lane. A great history museum which I can only recommend. It serves as a grave reminder that weapons of mass destruction should be abolished everywhere and that we should thrive for peace all around the globe.
  • A detailed exhibition on the effects of the nuclear explosion in Nagasaki. The museum also outlines the history of the nuclear bomb and others who have been affected by them. Well worth a visit should you be in Nagasaki.
  • It was really long. Running around Nagasaki all day, i thought this park would be a good cool down, but it was very long (partly because of the arrangement/orginazation of the interior/set up. Pretty random.) The last exhibition was really interesting. The Hiroahima museum was more moving, but less informative
  • A must visit if you are in Nagasaki. It memorializes the victims and what the city was before and makes a statement against war. Four stars since the Hiroshima museum was bigger and more poignant.
  • A very well designed Museum with lots of objects which suffered the a-bomb explosion . Apart from that, there is a lot of historical information that is very well presented.
