Things to know

The Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum is an archive museum dedicated to the atomic bomb that was dropped on Nagasaki City on August 9, 1945, causing many people to lose their lives. The museum was built with the intent of conveying to future generations the gravity of the damage caused by the bomb, as well as contributing to the abolition of nuclear arms and realization of lasting world peace. Inside the museum are a number of documents and materials on display that show the terrible and destructive power of atomic bombs, including a clock that stopped at the instant of the explosion, 11:02; a re-creation of the Urakami Cathedral, which was destroyed in the blast; glass that melted from the heat; and photos depicting the disastrous scenes of when the bomb was dropped as well as victims of the explosion. In addition, visitors to the museum can learn about the history of nuclear weapons and international situations all the way up until the present. By facing the variety of displays at this museum, visitors will be encouraged to re-evaluate the importance of the elimination of nuclear weapons as well as the meaning of peace.
