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.

  • I think the museum should be turned into something less depressing. I think the pain will go away over time, when no one is left alive who remembers. I don't believe in imortalizing violence.
  • god will punish america that massacre was a dark chapter of human history
  • Learn more about atomic bomb. Let's fight against war and nuclear weapon.
  • Iam shoked to see it, lion or snake Never afried to see the same race, Human is very dangerous to its own race, man is very danger to his own,
