Great Museum Jul 31, 2013
This museum should be visited be everyone travelling in Japan. It has a special atmosphere, which is kinda sad and depressing on one hand but very very interesting on the other.

You will learn a lot about the history of Hiroshima, read about tragic fates of individuals, the invention of the atomic bomb and most important about the destructive power of nuclear weapons and why the world needs to get rid of them.

The admission is at about 50Yen, which is so cheap that you can actually say its free. Compared to so many boring and expensive art-museums in the world this is something special. Its a must-see, dont miss it!

Notice: Very explicit photography!

One sided view of the dropping of the A-bomb on Hiroshima Jul 22, 2000
Besides a visit to the Peace Park in Hiroshima, I can recommend a visit to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum as well. An entrance ticket costs 50 yen (around 0,50 eurocent or around 0,60 US dollarcent), which is almost for nothing.

Now, do bare in mind that this museum offers what happened during the war and especially what had happened before, during and after the dropping of the A-bomb on the city mostly from one side of the story: the japanese side.

But the images, videos and displays you see gives you an idea how big the force of the impact was when the bomb was detonated approximately 500 meters above the ground. Nearly the entire city was completely destroyed.

I was here in 2000 and in 2007 and both times photography was forbidden. I started in the East Building on the 1st floor, which has 2 models of the city. One before and one after the bomb was detonated.

On the 2nd floor & 3rd floor is a video corner, as well an explanation about the nuclear age. Then I went to west building where there are all kind sof displays of remains after the destruction.
