The Peace Museum explores the history and the often untold stories of peace, peacemakers, social reform and peace movements.

It occupies three small galleries in one of Bradford’s many fine Victorian buildings. It is unique in that it is the only accredited museum of its kind in the UK.

We will be open on both Thursday and Friday and will be offering free family/children activities, including collection handling, crafts, quizzes, free tea, coffee, cake and guided tours.
