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, and roughly 1,000 containers worth of artifacts including household items which were used in the Edo era, before and during the wars were found. The Hiroshima City Culture Foundation is currently analyzing the results of the excavation work.
In the exhibition, a piece of the A-bombed layer cut from the ground, and 33 pieces of articles that were used daily during the time period of the atomic bombing are on display.
