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.

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!
