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.

The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it.”
— Martin Luther King, Jr.
