Hiroshima City Ebayama Museum of Meteorology was Japan's first "meteorology-themed" museum. Here, you can have fun while learning about weather with hands-on exhibits, including the "Wind Capsule", which lets you experience the strength of the wind and the "Typhoon Box", where you can feel what it's like inside a typhoon or a cloud.
The science shows and science workshops held on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, as well as the special exhibitions that are held in August and January through March, are fun for the whole family. (Please verify the schedule ahead of time.)
Built in the year Showa 9 (1934), the museum building, the preserved former Hiroshima District Meteorological Observatory, is also one of the buildings which was damaged by the atomic bomb.
