Reflect on the horrors of nuclear warfare at Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum, located next door to the national memorial for victims of the bombings. The museum allows visitors to gain a deeper understanding of the history of the atomic bomb and its devastating immediate and long-term effects on the city. A major exhibit displays images of Nagasaki as it appeared before the bomb fell on August 9, 1945. Look for the clock hauntingly stopped at 11:02, the moment the bomb was dropped.

  • Everyone should see this and/or Hiroshima to understand how horrible war is.
  • Much lower quality than the museum in Hiroshima. More of a memorial than an educational experience. Not much of the decisions leading to the bombing are discussed, nor the context of the war at that time. Still, the survivors stories are touching.
