The East Building Reopens@


The East Building of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum will reopen on April 26, 2017, after the renovation which started in 2014.

 At the same time, the Main Building of the Museum will be closed for renovations and reorganization of the permanent exhibits.

While the Main Building is closed, visitors may freely access the A-bombed artifacts of the Main Building, temporarily displayed on the 1st floor of the East Building. Visitors may also access the New Arrivals Exhibit in the Special Exhibition Room on the basement level one of the East Building.

The comprehensive renovation process of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum is to be completed in July 2018.

Since the reopening of the East Building will be followed by the Japanese national holidays (Golden Week Holidays) including the Hiroshima Flower Festival (May 3-5), a large increase of the visitors is highly expected.

We sincerely appreciate your patience and cooperation.
