The Peace Museum

The Peace Museum was founded in 1994 and is a member of the International Network of Museums for Peace. It is the only accredited museum of its kind in the United Kingdom.


The history of peace, and the people and organisations who have been active and involved in the peace movement, is an important story to be told. We collect and safeguard artefacts relating to peace and peacemakers for the benefit of all.

By making these collections accessible, through exhibitions, education, and community programmes, we seek to demonstrate the importance of this heritage and inspire visitors to consider peacemaking as an active process.
