As the name suggests, the Honkawa Elementary School Peace Museum is an elementary school-turned-museum. A big part of the school was destroyed in the Hiroshima bombings during World War II. Just 6 months after the tragedy, the school reopend with 45 students and 4 teachers. Over the next couple of decades, the school was upgraded with new buildings and areas, added a memorial for the victims, and were given tributes by local organizations. By 1988, it officially became a museum that it is today.
Here are the things to look forward to in the museum - Photographs - Pictures and calligraphies by old and new students - Damaged objects - Paper cranes
It's a 2-5-minute walk to the south of Honkawacho Station (Aioi Dori Line)
It is closed during weekends and holidays.
