  • Many people underestimate the appeal of this place. This is a place to learn about the life of the Japanese during the Second World War. Many modern generations have not felt the accident of the war, but there is enough to reflect on the importance of peace.

  • I am extremely familiar about the American bombings on Japan during the closing stages of World War 2, but this peace center completely swayed my thoughts on the bombings. Memories, paintings, and pho...  more »
  • I think it is a chance to Osaka Castle, so stop by anyone. I think Japan, because the weight in such facilities. Overseas, often including the Holocaust. Can be recommended for both children and adults.

  • Tip - if you can't read Japanese request a free electronic audio guide. An exceptional museum about Japanese military history and specifically the impact of World War 2 on its civilian population. Thoughtfully designed spaces that present data and stories using appropriate media. I appreciated how many exhibits prompt the audience to consider what they've learned and try to imagine themselves in that situation. My favourite exhibits were the interviews and paintings by Osaka bombing raid survivors. A must-visit location in Osaka.
  • Good to see a bit of the destruction of Osaka. Very limited though on the background of the wars and Japan's role in other countries.
  • The air raid shelter is pretty cool but the museum would be better with more english translation too - The English audio itself is not sufficient.
  • Fantastic exhibits. They had diaries from school-aged children during the war that really touches your heart, albeit in Japanese.
  • very disappointing place . Very little is translated into English despite that being a language that many people will understand if they are not Japanese. Hardly any exhibits of arms/armaments/uniforms or equipment.....but worse of all is the total lack of anything on what responsibility Japan had in WW2. There was nothing on their partnership with Nazi germany or the terrible things they did in the war...the whole thing is just about how the americans bombed Japan.....with no focus on why
