A Space to Make Peace:
Founded in 2004, the Dayton International Peace Museum raises awareness of nonviolent strategies for achieving peace now and in the future. The Dayton International Peace Museum was founded by J. Frederick Arment, Ralph and Christine Dull, Steve Fryburg and Lisa Wolters. It honors the 1995 Dayton Peace Accords that ended war in Bosnia. Our mission is to inspire a local, national, and international culture of peace. Learn more »
Located in downtown Dayton, the Museum is housed in the Isaac Pollack House, a three-story structure built in 1865 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Museum is a 501(c)3 organization and relies on volunteers and private donors for its support. The Museum is a member of the International Network of Museums for Peace, which has members in 27 countries, including Germany, Iran, Japan, Kenya, and South Africa.

Good spot for families - This place so nice. There is an awesome kids room and a library, very impactful though small exhibits. Sweet and knowledgeable volunteer tour guide too. We spent about an hour here and definitely enjoyed our time. —March 2019 on TripAdvisor
Wow! Well worth a stop to tour. I went with friends to see the Peace Labyrinth Quilt display and it was truly unbelievable. I really enjoyed the rest of the museum much more than I expected to, especially the exhibit about the Reynolds family traveling to atomic testing sites back in the day.
