広島平和記念資料館
  • Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum

Opened in 1955, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum is dedicated to conveying the realities of the atomic bombing to the people of the world, and contributing to realizing the will of Hiroshima: the abolition of nuclear weapons and the realization of lasting world peace.

In 1994, during the renovation of the former Peace Memorial Hall, it was decided to join the hall and the museum together and reopen as the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum (East Wing/Main Building). The museum displays artifacts from the victims of the bombing, as well as photographs of the destruction caused on August 6, the history of Hiroshima before and after WWII, an introduction to the nuclear age, and other exhibits.

They also house materials for peace education, which can be borrowed and checked out for educational purposes.
