A traveling exhibition that focuses on the U.S. nuclear attacks on Japan during World War II has opened at the Battleship Missouri Memorial, which is located in the heart of the Pearl Harbor Memorial site.

"Of Silhouettes and Ash: The Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki" includes artifacts collected by the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum and the Battleship Missouri Memorial. Among the items on display is an original origami crane folded by Sadako Sasaki, a victim of the Hiroshima bombing on Aug. 6, 1945.

The exhibit is presented in partnership with the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum and is being presented in Hawaii for the first time since its creation in 1995. The exhibit runs through Nov. 30.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the Battleship Missouri Memorial is taking additional steps to assure guest health and safety during tours. Currently, the "Mighty Mo" is open Wednesdays through Sundays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
