  • This facility is designed so even when you visit interesting. Especially on Saturday and skits and hakushu's (Court's) there can be enjoyed. Why go to Nagasaki to be stopped.

  • The museum has been restored from the perspective of the old one, and the entry is very contemporary, often, the exhibition room requires the participants to get rid of shoes to enter, the introduction of the history of Qi, and from the river in the role of the pursuit of Qi, like the history of friends do not miss.

  • And not the Government and not so far. But the Administration still doing here? I saw the efforts of Nagasaki. The Nagasaki magistrate's Office play pretty good.

  • A thorough history of Nagasaki's 300+ year history. Has a decent set of signs in English. Most of it is in Japanese. But enough in English to get the gist of the history. When we visited they had a live performance is music and a period drama.
  • They have done a really good job of portraying what happened in 1945. One feels pained and realises the sheer impact of atomic bombs on lives and property. It really drives home the message that Nagasaki should be the last bomb that fell on Earth. What is even nicer about the museum is that they even track historical events before the bomb was dropped. The exhibits are well maintained and taken care of as well. My heart goes out to all the people in Nagasaki who are survivors of the bomb or have suffered it's consequences.
  • Since the Dejima museum has added a lot of stuff in 2016 I personally think the Dejima is a better place to visit for people who don't speak Japanese and want to learn about the history of Nagasaki and Japanese foreign relations. The permanent exhibition in the Nagasaki Museum of History and Culture is however well worth the visit if you have some additional time. They do a great job telling the story of the history of Nagasaki and Japan's relationship with the outside world. There is however hardly any written English explanations. The free audio tour is quite good but did not cover the entire exhibition. We also visited the temporary Studio Ghibli exhibition. Sadly there was no English audio or text anywhere in the exhibition. Since this was quite an expensive exhibition and since we asked for the audio tour, it would have been nice if they could have told us this.
  • Does have English audio guide, but it could improve on it. Great museum with a clear narative describing the history of Nagasaki.
  • Small but interesting exhibits of the city such as trade and life in ancient times. Excellent gift store. One section on second floor has a historic recrestion (?) Of an old Japanese house.
