Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, located in southern Hiroshima, sits across from the Atomic Bomb Dome in the Peace Memorial Park. The museum houses information about Hiroshima’s history before and after the atomic bombing during WWII and aims to educate visitors about the infamous event and after-effects. Through education, the museum seeks to spread awareness about the inhumane nature of nuclear weapons and ultimately ban them. Its message is powerful: No More Hiroshimas.

Notice

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, a virtual tour of the museum has been released, as well as a Peace Park tour from the day of the anniversary event.
