Atomic Bomb Museum in Hiroshima to be repaired

An advisory committee met on February 24 and discussed what should be of exhibition in the Atomic Bomb Museum located in Hiroshima City, where the radiation victims' items, photographs of the Zero ground, etc. had been exhibited.

The Hiroshima City will settle on a formal plan based on the proposed idea by the committee, and make it public by May. Repair work will start in 2013 and open in 2017. Meanwhile the museum will be closed.

The opinions of the citizens on the repair plan included not only material explanation etc. on the environmental impact by the nuclear weapon use but also accessibility for persons with visual impairment and the Deaf.
