＊The museum is closed on December 30 and 31.
Cosmetic bottle with a fancy lid on it, beer bottle leaving the content inside, clock of modern design―these items left at the burnt-out ruins remind us that people always seek a little joy and comfort in their lives whether 76 years ago or today. No matter how severely deformed, items that had been used in daily life help us realize that people at that time had some of the same feelings as we do today.
This exhibition traces the lives and memories of people of that time by using items found at burnt-out ruins after the atomic bombing as clues. The model, visual materials, and graphic charts in the exhibition provide a clear description of the fierceness of the heat rays and the fire which burned and deformed the items. Some of the items on display were collected by those who were left behind; they kept the items carefully to remember their loved ones.
