Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum (Genbaku Shiryokan)
Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum (Genbaku Shiryokan) Review
The spiral staircase of this museum takes you down into a dark, thought-provoking, collection of video loops, dioramas, and exhibits that demonstrate the devastating effects of the bomb that was detonated here. English audio tours are available, though what you see is already a lot to handle. The continuous, unblinking film footage is absolutely nauseating at several points, and a melted and blasted wall clock, as surreal as any Dalí painting, sears its way into your conscience. To get to the museum, take Streetcar 1 from Nagasaki Station to the Hamaguchi stop.
