Long Description:
The city of Hiroshima never asked for the fame of being the first city bombed by an atomic weapon, but they have taken that notoriety and focused it on the abolition of all nuclear weapons. Every year a peace declaration is read by the mayor of Hiroshima. This museum is dedicated to the preservation of all of the history of the atomic bombing, with the hope that there will be "No more Hiroshimas".
