Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum Reviews
This area is the location of where the atomic bomb hypercenter exploded over the city. It's very educational, heartfelt, and exceptionally sad. It's interesting to see the various types of foreigners.... more »
This was quite sad to see all the damage done but the Japanese say how silly it was for their generals from an island country to attack the USA and Britain on the same day. 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!
