The Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum, the Nagasaki National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims, and the Peace Park were established to communicate what it’s like to live through a nuclear explosion so that hopefully, these horrific events will never happen again. Gruesome artifacts of the bombing transform into pieces of intense emotional power in the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum. Head next to the Nagasaki National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims to pay tribute, mourn the victims of the bombing, and offer prayers for peace. Water flows gently throughout the entire building and serves as a symbolic offering to the victims who died crying out desperately for water. Just a short walk from the museum and the memorial hall is Peace Park where you can find the hypocenter or ground zero of the bombing, marked by a cenotaph and steps in concentric circles. The park exhibits various peace monuments gifted by various countries around the world.
