DAYTON PEACE MUSEUM

A Space to Make Peace

aka Dayton International Peace Museum   |   Dayton, OH   |  www.DaytonPeaceMuseum.org

Mission

The Dayton International Peace Museum is America's only brick and mortar peace museum. The Museum raises awareness of nonviolent strategies for building peace and to inspire a local, national and international culture of peace through exhibits, workshops, a children's camp, a teen group, book clubs, and a vital outreach program.

Notes from the nonprofit

The Dayton International Peace Museum was founded in 2004 by a small group of volunteers interested in creating a culture of peace within the Dayton, Ohio region but spreading the message of nonviolence, social justice, and tolerance far beyond the American midwest. Still today, the Museum is largely volunteer-run and supported almost entirely by individual supporters. The Museum is the only bricks and mortar peace museum in the United States and has a vigorous calendar of events each year made up of exhibits, workshops, summer camp, an active teen group, all led by dozens of volunteers. The Museum has an extensive outreach program to like-minded groups across the region. The Museum is currently working on its first endowment to expand its reach and to be able to help more groups and individuals in the future.
