  • Visited this place at Summer Holiday. It was so nice that they provided phamplet that written in different languages, helped me to understand better about the place. At some places, it said not to take a picture of the bombing victim, so please be mindful.
  • Educational, moving, thought provoking, moving, angering, saddening . All things to attribute to the location of the world’s first nuclear/atomic weapon use. A prescient and critical reminder of what horrors the human mind is capable of if given the tools and authority to enact its more primal urges. Even more important given today’s global political climate.
