Consisting of two buildings, the museum surveys the history of Hiroshima and the nuclear bomb's advent. Its main focus is on August 6: the dropping of the bomb and its outcome in human suffering. The personal details displayed are quite upsetting and remind us that we should not take peace for granted.

    The A-Bomb Dome, also known as the Hiroshima Peace Memorial, remains of the former Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall. The building served as a location to promote Hiroshima's industries. When the bomb exploded, it was one of the few buildings to remain standing and remains today. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the A-Bomb Dome is a tangible link to Hiroshima's unique past.
