【Important】Opening Hours Extension and Online Ticket Purchasing and Reservation Services

February 1, 2024

The G7 Hiroshima Summit held in May 2023 brought heightened attention to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. It increased the number of visitors, resulting in an occasional situation where long lines were formed in front of the entrance, causing a congestion inside the museum. To ease the congestion, we will extend the museum’s opening hours and introduce an online ticket purchasing and reservation services on a trial basis.


Trial period: March 1, 2024–March 31, 2025 (Reservation will start on Feb.16.)
