Nagasaki Atomic Bomb MuseumNagasaki

At 11:02 a.m. on August 9, 1945, the B-29 bomber dropped an atomic bomb on Nagasaki, just three days after the first attack on Hiroshima. The fierce blast wind, heat rays that reached several thousand degrees, and deadly radiation generated by the explosion devastated the city, killing 74,000 people and wounding another 75,000. The survivors also suffered, and still suffer, extensively from the mental and physical damage of the atomic bomb. The museum exhibits extensive materials, both print and reproductions, on the actual bombing and latest nuclear weapons, aiming to contribute to the abolition of nuclear weapons and the realization of lasting world peace.
