  • Perfect blend of history, culture, and nature. (+) The park itself is quite expansive. It could definitely be a full day's event, especially if you visit the museum. (+) There are loads of statues...

  • I am glad i went there. It opened my eyes to the reality of nuclear weapons and how Hiroshima and Nagasaki were just for testing the bombs. Horrible, but necessary for all to see.

  • A historical place for the people around the world
  • The displays outside of the museum are beautiful and full of life. Showcasing how humanity can come together and create a monument to peace and prosperity. The museum itself is difficult. It is not for the faint of heart, and I would bring tissue. Men, women, children, nationals, and foreigners alike could not hold back their tears. I would recommend you go as the exhibit is in multiple languages and has an audio tour. I would also see the outside first, as the interior will monopolize the experience when you are done.
