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. 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. About us »

Welcome to America’s only brick-and-mortar peace museum!
People cannot be expected to end disputes peacefully if they have never learned nonviolent alternatives. Yet, few places exist for the sole purpose of teaching people—especially children—nonviolent approaches to conflict resolution. Our peace museum fills this void.
The Museum is free to members but we suggest a donation of $8 per person for non-members. No one will ever be turned away by their inability to make a donation.(Closed during the health crisis)

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.
