Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum is a museum in
the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park.
This museum was opened in 1955.
The museum has two buildings, Main Building and East Building.
We visit East Museum first.
In East Building, the history of Hiroshima city until A-bombing and the historic background why Hiroshima was selected as the target are introduced.
In Main Building, we can see the human damage and physical damage by
atomic bomb in Hiroshima.
Various miserable articles found in the ruin, the diorama of the city after the exposion, and other items are displayed.
Especially the charred lunch box which a schoolgirl had, and the stone on which a shape of woman was printed, are well known.
When you travel in Hiroshoma, I hope to visit this museum.
And think whether nuclear weapons are necessery for humankind.
The entrance fee is only 50 yen.
By street car with route No. 2 or
