Nagasaki is the little sister to Hiroshima regarding death tourism” in Japan. Or if I should phrase it more politically correct when it regards tourists with an interest in World War II. And what a beautiful sister she is. I have been to Hiroshima and...More

Beautiful and sad, all should visit this site which is adjacent to the Atomic bomb museum. We were on a tour from a cruise ship, and there were several buses.

A moving exhibition that should be seen by all. Only gave it a 4 as the Hiroshima similar exhibition i thought was superior. Easy access, photos with no flash allowed and all exhibits have English explanations.

The memorial hall is very well done, respectful, peaceful and it gives you a chance to mourn the victims. You have time to reflect on your visit and hope that these kind of events will not happen in the future.

A very moving memorial which is quite and should be. Remember, a lot of people lost their lives here. Nice and close to the peace park so it's easy to do both.

This hall is part of the memorial peace park and such. It's free and it's a nice and quiet walk inside the building. The hall in the basement is somehow nice to sit down and think but it all felt a bit too sterile.
