The Peace Museum 10 Piece Hall Yard
West Yorkshire

The Peace Museum UK occupies three small galleries in one of Bradford’s many fine Victorian buildings. A member of the International Network of Museums for Peace, it is unique in that it is the only accredited museum of its kind in the UK. The Museum highlights through its collection and education and outreach work, the stories of the countless people who have tried to bring an end to extremism, conflict, violence and inequality and to create social justice, understanding, peace and cohesion. It is a local Museum, which explores hidden histories and untold stories of national and global importance. We work with intending and in serving teachers to help enrich curriculum provision, using exciting 21st century strategies. We offer a range of resources aimed at primary, secondary and post 16, at competitive prices. These are all explicitly linked to the requirements of the National Curriculum, Citizenship and SMSC. Please visit our websites for more details.
