Like to plan ahead and looking for a field trip opportunity at the beginning of the next school year?

In September, Landmark Center in St. Paul will host two exceptional peace exhibitions: Hiroshima Nagasaki Peace Exhibition and Pictures from a Hiroshima Schoolyard.

War, peace, and the power of reconciliation and healing. What do those words mean to our students? What might these words mean by studying the difficult past events of World War II and the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki? How might students think about their role in bringing about a peaceful world? On this 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, Landmark Center’s Hiroshima Nagasaki Peace Exhibition and Pictures from a Hiroshima Schoolyard will challenge your students (5-12 grades) to think about the difficult events of the past and the kind of world they will want to help shape now and in the future.

Consider planning a class field trip to the Hiroshima and Nagasaki exhibitions at Landmark this fall. We may be able to offer transportation support from our U.S.-Japan Foundation grant, and we are willing to make accommodations to your field trip needs.

You can learn more about each of these Landmark Center exhibits and field trips by clicking the images below, or by visiting


Should you wish to invite a guest speaker who is an atomic bomb survivor to share his or her story with your students, or if you have questions about the Landmark exhibits, please contact:
