Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum

The Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum was established in 1996 and covers the history of the events leading up to the atomic bombing of Nagasaki in 1945. The museum houses a display of photographs, relics, documents, along with the history of nuclear weapons and effects of the bombs. A special exhibit room in the museum was designed to provide visitors a look into the past, which consists of what the city of Nagasaki looked like just before it was destroyed. The most iconic object on display is a clock which stopped at 11:02, the exact time the bomb destroyed the city, emphasizing on how quick the city along with its inhabitants were destroyed. Another section reproduced what the city looked like right after the bombings. Clusters of glass melted together, steel rods infused with one another, along with many artifacts left by the deceased. Photographs provide a look at the side effects of radiation from those who did not pass away from the bright light of death. Next to the Atomic Bomb Museum is the Nagasaki Peace Park, which is a monument dedicated to World Peace, hoping this tragic event never happens again. Travelers can learn about the atomic bombs right at the Japanese prefecture that received it.
