Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum
Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum


Hiroshima was the first city in history to fall victim to a nuclear bomb, and it's here that this museum was built in hopes of eliminating nuclear weaponry from the world and contributing to lasting world peace. The museum graphically exhibits the actual damage suffered by victims of the nuclear bombing and the articles they left behind. In addition, there is a walk-through showing Hiroshima before and after the bomb as well as the conditions of the “Nuclear Age.”
