Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum

At 8:15 a.m., August 6, 1945, the worlds first atomic bomb was dropped on the city of Hiroshima. The fierce blast wind and heat rays completely or partially destroyed or burnt down 90% of the city's 76,000 buildings. The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum lies within the Peace Memorial Park close to the hypocenter of the bomb. The East Building shows a history of Hiroshima before and after the bombing, and the West Building exhibits articles left by the victims, a-bomb-exposed materials, and photographs. The primary objective and mission of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum are the same as those of the museum in the city of Hiroshima: the abolition of nuclear weapons and the realization of genuine and lasting world peace.'
