Despite being upsetting, visiting the Atomic Bomb Museum is very interesting and teaches a lot about nuclear power. There are other things to do in Nagasaki, like walking trough China Town, going to the Peace Park, getting on top of Mount Inasa) from where you can admire the best and most stunning night view of the city).

Art and architecture lovers should visit the Art Museum, an interesting modern building that hosts permanent and temporary exhibitions and which has a great roof garden with a not-bad view. There are plenty of temples and shrines to be visited too. For families and kids, there also is the Penguin Aquarium, which can be a nice alternative activity for something different.
