The Peace Museum

The Peace Museum, the only museum of its kind in the UK, explores the events and history of people and organisations that have worked to promote peace, non-violence and for a fair and just society. The Museum is dedicated to the collection, conservation, and interpretation of material relating to this history.

Through its collection, exhibitions, resources and learning activities the museum aims to engage, educate and inspire others to engage with issues of diversity, equality, peace and cohesion.

The museum is located in Piece Hall Yard, Bradford, West Yorkshire, UK. The Museum galleries occupy the top floor of one of Bradford’s many spectacular 19th century city centre buildings and may be found just off Hustlergate, opposite Waterstones Bookshop and the City Vaults.
