The Peace Museum writes into history the largely unknown and ignored histories of peace movements, its history and creativity, and fosters creating cultures of peace locally and globally. I found visiting its gallery in Bradford city centre inspirational and its exhibits engage the visitor, encouraging each of us to “give peace a chance.”

The Peace Museum is an almost unknown national treasure. Peace work does not hit headlines but here, in one place, there is rich evidence of so much hard work over so many years by so many people working for a fairer and less violent world. Make your visit a 2016 priority.
Judith Cummins MP
Member of Parliament for Bradford South
The Peace Museum is a national treasure trove of peace artefacts and stories. It’s a valuable educational tool for children and adults alike, allowing us all the explore the people who have fought so hard to end extremism, conflict, violence, war and inequality. The museum has big ambitions and some great ideas about how they can reach even more people, using the latest technology, alongside its traditional exhibitions.
General Secretary of CND
A hidden gem. Seek it out and you will be richly rewarded by the Museum’s remarkable collections, bringing history and activism to life in an unrivalled fashion.
Naz Shah MP
Member of Parliament for Bradford West
The Peace Museum is unique in the UK and is a treasure trove of stories and artefacts that inspire Peace. I’m proud that a Muslim woman (Shireen Shah) proposed the idea of a Museum in Bradford. In these uncertain times the hope of peace and a better world needs to be kept alive.
Richard Corbett MEP
Member of the European Parliament for Yorkshire and the Humber
This little museum, tucked away in Bradford city centre, is well worth a visit. It displays international, nations and local attempts to oppose futile wars over the past century and more, shows the courage of the men and women involved, who were often persecuted, and explores how to avoid repeating mistakes of the past.
Former Member of Parliament for Halifax
A visit to The Peace Museum is a must. It provides a wonderful insight into the insanity of choosing war instead of meaningful dialogue and sincere negotiations.
Journalist and Author of "We Will Not Fight"
There are many museums dedicated to war, very few to peace. The Peace Museum is not just a vital resource but also a vital reminder of the individuals who dedicate their lives to the idea that we must never give up on finding a peaceful answer to the problems the world faces.
Professor Paul Rogers
Peace Studies Department, Bradford University
The Peace Museum is consistently inspiring. It shows how people in so many places persist in opposing war and, just as important, work to build more peaceful and just societies.
