Review of Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/12/04 Historic site
The site gave a lot of information about what happened during ending world war 2 and what the dramatic consequences were caused by the atomic bomb. It is a must to see.
Reviewed:2018/12/03 Of course, a must see
I heard that the Hiroshima memorial is "bigger, better", etc.", but you cannot quantify something like that by size. I would recommend one see first the historic shipbuilding musesum from Mitsubishi...

          This hidden corner of the country is rural Japan at its best, where underground activity is to thank for active volcanoes and bubbling natural hot springs along the Shimabara Peninsula as well as the crystal clear waters of the Goto Islands off the west coast. Less well known than Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park, Nagasaki commemorates its own past at the Nagasaki Peace Park, which sits alongside the charming Meganebashi stone bridge and a mix of religious buildings with beautiful architecture, such as the Zen Buddhist Sofukuji Temple, the Confucian Shrine, and the Oura Christian Church.
