Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum Reviews
This is a place to be reminded about the brutal facts about the realities of nuclear warfare. The museum is haunting and disturbing in its use of images that conjure up a day that will hopefully mark.... more »
While once could never say this is a fun stop it is very well done. Most of the signs have English and there is an excellent English audio guide. more »
Very well organized with lots of good history about the dropping of the bomb over Nagasaki. Reasonable entrance fees. It is much smaller compared to the one at Hiroshima but still very worth the visit. Might not be the most suitable for smaller kids due to the nature of the show cases and photos. All related sites to that particular moment in time are within walking distance. There are guided tours and staff if needed.
Really interesting, we were there at the day it was 74 years ago that it happened. We realized that inside the museum. Gave me goosebumps. Everything is good in English and we'll organized!
