Take some time to visit this memorial. It contains information about those who lost their lives in the tragedy. The video presentation on some of the victims before and after the bombing will really move you emotionally as it is mostly about children. Very well...More

A stunning and moving monument. Definitely take the time to visit. I was moved to tears. It is a silent space that winds down to a central area where you can stand and reflect on the devastation of the bombing.

Walking down the curved ramp to the circular room, I wasn't prepared for the impact of finding myself standing in a circular room looking at a wrap-around (full 360 degree) mosaic made from thousands of small tiles (one for each death caused by the bombing)....More

The memorial building is a moving tribute to the lives lost in the bombing and the personal sequelae of this event. The afternoon we attended there were some survivors of the bombing reciting personal memoirs of the bombing. The memoirs are emotionally powerful and can...More

Walking down the ramp inside this Memorial Hall isn't enough to prepare you for the devastation that you see from the photographs after the bombing. You can look up victims by name if you are a relative or know of someone who was killed by...More
