  • Definitely go here if you can. The information is important to take in. The museum was under construction when we went, so we didn’t see the whole thing, but we still got plenty of info.  more »

  • Nagasaki National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims (国立長崎原爆死没者追悼平和祈念館) is a commemorative monument in Nagasaki, Japan, situated next to its Atomic Bomb Museum. The Peace Park is nearby. Like its counterpart in Hiroshima, the hall was constructed as a place to remember and pray for those killed by the 1945 atomic bombing, with photos, and memoirs and personal accounts of the event. It also offers information on international co-operation and exchange activities concerning medical treatment for sufferers of nuclear accidents.
  • Loved my time there. Loud tourists did ruin a bit of my thinking. If you want to spend a pensive moment here go early in the morning.
