    Walk slowly to the Nagasaki Museum of history located in the Nagasaki magistrate's Office site from the Church faces nishizaka, Japan 26 martyrs martyrs monument, about 20 minutes. It is like going down the Hill. Along the way include historic sites such as the Temple of Christian origin. Historical Museum consists of two permanent exhibitions, is to showcase the history of Nagasaki and to showcase the history of the Nagasaki magistrate's Office and reproduction. Feeling like something is both interesting, but especially exhibited the reproduction of the magistrate's Office were entered in the magistrate's Office. It is recommended that various cases were judged in this exhibition, so take a moment, visit.

    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.

    No, more atomic bombs please. Is devastating to see the pain inflicted in others.

    A good museum that concentrates in local history. English exhibition text is limited. English audio guide is also available but is also limited in content.
