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.

“Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.”
— President John F. Kennedy

On Sunday, February 15, Local Returning Peace Corps Volunteers talk about the value of global service at the Museum's new PEACE STATION 208, a space for coffee, chocolate and conversations about peace.
