Hiroshima Peace Museum: Part 1

The museum at night, the eternal peace flame in the foreground.
Weekend trips to the art museum-one of my favorite childhood memories.  The Minneapolis Institute of arts had-and still has-“treasure hunt” pamphlets to help gets children interested in art.  I loved it.

And I still love museums.  I have seen and experienced some of the best in the world: the Vatican Museums, the Chicago Field Museum, Tokyo National Museum.  All fabulous.

During our visit to Hiroshima, we explored the Museum dedicated solely to the history surrounding the atomic bomb. 

I was extremely impressed.

More to come!
Pin It!
