Lots of information on the atomic bomb but the information on Japan’s role in the war was hidden until the end. They acknowledge they started the war and war responsible for it but soft pedal it and try to sweep it under the rug.

enjoyed the morning touring the Atomic Bomb Museum. It is definitely worth seeing. Then we walked over to the monument that marks Ground Zero and then on to Peace Park. In the afternoon we walked from the ship to Glover Garden. It is a beautiful area on the side of a hill with several buildings that you can tour. The gardens are beautiful and the view of the harbor is outstanding. Read Less

A very powerful, well thought out museum.
Sail Date: February 2017
A very powerful, well thought out museum. Very sombering experience. The museum chronicles the dropping of the second nuclear bomb on Nagasaki in a very unbiased non judgemental way. We witnessed Japanese tourists weeping at the exhibits.

Sail Date: December 2016
Very informative, gives a different view of the use of Atom Bomb during WWII. Near the end, it is so sad that after seeing all the horrors that happened because of the bombing, nuclear bombs and testing still continued!

Excellent Museum. I wished we could've spent more time here. Very intersting and graphic videos, pictures, and exhibition. Japanese School children were everywhere but were very polite and always accomodated our picture taking.
