  • 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 »

  • It's hard to find, but it is worth visiting. It doesn't look much from the back (google maps led me to the back entrance), but it looks better if you're coming from the Osaka Castle Park. The background was lacking, as they did not mention why the war started. Most of the exhibits are about the air bombings that happened in Japan, not much about what happened in the other parts of the world, it was not very extensive in that regard. Use of English translations and reading materials can be improved, especially on the video clip.
  • 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.
