A must-visit spot for anyone wanting to learn about Hiroshima's modern history!
Housed in a red brick building, the Hiroshima City Museum of History and Traditional Crafts is a humanities museum which focuses on Hiroshima's traditional local industries.
The museum occupies part of a preserved building that was constructed in 1911 (Meiji 44) and once served as an Imperial Army food supply depot.
As one of few remaining examples of Meiji Period modern Western architecture in Hiroshima, and for the excellence of its design and its construction techniques, the building has been designated by Hiroshima City as an Important Tangible Cultural Property.
Not limited to just local industries, the museum's displays also include those showcasing the construction of Ujina Port, Hiroshima's history and the day-to-day lives of Hiroshima's people. One can also view riverboats, hairpieces and other artifacts of yesteryear.
