Battleship Yamato Museum, Hiroshima, Japan 

This museum showcases the history of Kure from its origins with Japan’s push for modernization after the Meiji Restoration – modernization built around steel and shipbuilding. The exhibits also explain the efforts and hardships experienced by the people who built the city. There is a 1:10 scale replica of the battleship ‘Yamato’ inside the museum as well as a real Mitsubishi Zero A6M fighter plane. On the third floor, there are ship simulators and other exhibits that let you experience and learn about the technology behind ships and shipbuilding firsthand.
