Peace Park and Memorial Museum, Hiroshima: 129 reviews and 266 photos

  Peace Memorial Meseum
by elcbw

The Peace Memorial Museum graphically displays the atomic bomb's horrible effects on the city and its inhabitants. A visit is naturally depressing. In the museum's east building, Hiroshima's militarist past and the process leading to the dropping of the bomb are documented. Audio guides are available in more than a dozen languages

There was a huge downpour while we were at the Memorial Park, making the already depressing surronding even more depressing.
