This is an extemely busy Museum,so if you are going book early and get a fast pass.It was difficult to see everything because of the crowds but it is a real eye opener to what really happened.

Come here for a quiet and stark reminder of the human cost of war. The facility is as much a piece of art as it is a memorial.

This structure, mostly below ground, was beautifully finished in granite and is a suiting memorial to all those who perished. You can actually look up names of the 140,000 who died while you are there.

Just when we were about to conclude an underwhelming visit to the Memorial Park, we saw this out of the corner of our eyes. Unfortunately there are no photos to share, but it's for a good reason. The stories told in this venue is highly personal which reaches the depth of your heart.

The tales of the perished school boys is a timely reminder of the collateral damage incurred in wars. You will feel the deep sense of sorrow from the moment you step in till you leave.

With free admission and built at the vortex of the atomic bomb blast, this memorial is well worth visiting. You journey through a downward spiral to the bottom where records can be accessed of the victims.

I didn't have enough time to explore fully and check the videos that document the real life events since I had to rejoin our group tour, but this is one place I would spend more time if I could.
