Exhibitions at The Peace Museum
Permanent and Temporary Exhibitions
The Peace Museum’s unique exhibitions explore peace history as well as contemporary issues, local heritage, peacemakers stories and the ways in which people have worked to make the world a better place to live.
See the unique artefacts and exhibitions on display, by visiting our small, but attractive Museum galleries. Our current exhibits encompass local, national and international peace history.
Room 1 hosts our Conscientious Objection gallery, and our permanent exhibition ‘Protest! In Our Time’ which explores peaceful protest in the 21st century.
Our Greenham Common: Common Ground, Uncommon women exhibit details the tireless campaigning of the Greenham women. We also have the mini- exhibition ‘What Story Will You Tell?’ the story of Sadako Sasaki (of paper cranes fame!). A particular favourite with children visiting the Museum.
Our temporary exhibition space is changed every three to four months with exciting and engaging exhibitions.
Take a look at the other posts in our exhibitions page to find out about past, current and upcoming temporary exhibitions.
More information can also be found on our Collections page.
In Leeds? Why not visit our exhibition at the Royal Armouries?
This exhibition was created in conjunction with the Royal Armouries and is on permanent display in the War Gallery on the second floor. It focuses on the idea of conversion – from war to peace, from weapons and armour to useful tools or symbolic images.
The display explores the positive changes that have been – and are still being – made by individuals, groups and whole nations that choose to replace conflict with peace.
The Museum has several travelling exhibitions which can be loaned out and displayed. Please click the link for more information.
