The Main Building of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, designed by Kenzo Tange, was designated as the first national important cultural property in 2006 among the architectural buildings which were constructed after World War II. To prevent the building from seismic disaster, it is currently undergoing construction for earthquake resistance.
Prior to the construction, Hiroshima City Culture Foundation conducted excavation work under the Main Building from November 2015 to March 2017. During the excavation work, we found 1,000 containers worth of artifacts from the Edo era, before and during the wars, and household items which were used at the time of the atomic bombing. The Hiroshima City Culture Foundation is currently analyzing the results of the excavation work. Some of these results are presented in this exhibition.
