Welcome to the Dayton International Peace Museum!

The Dayton International Peace Museum is a non-profit, primarily volunteer organization and one of the few U.S. community-based institutions with a sole focus on peace.

The mission of the Museum is to inspire a local, national and international culture of peace. Founded in 2004, the Museum helps people of all ages learn nonviolent ways to achieve peace. Located in downtown Dayton, the Museum honors the 1995 Dayton Peace Accords that helped end violence in Bosnia.

I became friends with incredible people and had unique experiences which significantly altered the course of my life. These interactions provided me a greater understanding and respect for our world’s diverse cultures, languages, and peoples, which were extremely useful when I had the opportunity to live, work, and travel overseas.
— JIM DILLION Dominican Republic (1975-1977)

Ambassador Tony Hall tours the Dayton International Peace Museum and talks with Ex. Director, Jerry Leggett about his upcoming visit with the Dalai Lama.

A group of students from Harmony Creek Church in Centerville are some of the first guests at the Museum's new PEACE STATION 208, a space for coffee, chocolate and conversations about peace.
