Description:

The Peace Museum has a collection of some 6,000 items. They chart the history of Peacemakers and Peace-making, locally, nationally and globally.

 

It is the only accredited museum of its kind in the UK. The Peace Museum is a member of the International Network of Museums for Peace.


The history of peace is often un-told. The Peace Museum highlights the stories of the countless number of people who have worked to bring an end to extremism, conflict, violence and inequality and who have attempted to create understanding, peace and cohesion.


The Peace Museum asks that people consider both the past and the present and reflect upon how these may inform and transform the attitudes and behaviour of tomorrow.
