As with the Hiroshima museum, the Nagasaki museum smashes you in the face with the human impact of the atomic bombing - the survivor's stories, the artefacts left behind, and the suffering of the victims.

The Atomic Bomb Museum is laid out in such a way that you are drawn from one exhibit to the next, following the "Story" of the bombing in an emotional but inspiring journey, showing the strength of survival of the people of Nagasaki. One of the last photos on display of a young boy and his brother was my undoing;... More

This is one of the main reasons why we visited Nagasaki. It was easy to reach via the Tram - go the down the Matsuyama-Machi stop. Then follow the road signs or ask around. The locals are very nice.

I have been here 2 times, the first time was 7 years ago. I noted that this trip there still wasn't any mention of Pearl Harbor in the lead up to the bomb, but the did change the history wall to mention 1941 and the Pacific War. That information wasn't there 7 years ago, the first mentions of war were... More

When I booked a cruise to Nagasaki, I have no idea what to expect to see there. Fact that I only knew the nuclear bomb in WWII dropped in Hiroshima, I was surprised to hear that Nagasaki was actually the last city to be hit by it. This museum is definitely a must go. The taxi we got at the... More

It was a very emotional experience. This museum is fantastic because everybody has a realistic perspective about historical facts of the tragedy.

This is a very good museum which handles the enormity of the nuclear bomb attack on Nagasaki well. It is surprising how small the bomb was (there is a replica) and chilling film of it being loaded onto the plane. It was quite a revelation to see how some things survived the blast, distorted and twisted, but 74 000 died... More

This museum really showed the horrors of the result of the second atomic bomb dropped on Japan in WW2 The displays were thoughtfully laid out and the artefacts were chilling I would have liked to see noted that when American doctors and scientists visited the site after the bombing they purely went to see the results and not to help...
