Dayton International Peace Museum

Founded in 2004 by Ralph and Christine Dull, J. Frederick Arment, Lisa Wolters, and Steve Fryburg, the Dayton International Peace Museum was the second of its kind in the United States. The objective of the museum is to inspire peace from local communities to international communities.

The museum is located in the historic Isaac Pollack house, located at 208 West Monument Avenue, at the corner of Wilkinson Street and Monument Avenue.

The museum houses exhibits designed to educate visitors about nonviolent responses to conflict. Check out a list of the exhibits here.

In May of 2015, the museum held its first Peace Heroes Walk downtown to celebrate peace heroes. The event brought together over 700 people of all kinds of backgrounds. As a result of this successful event, the Peace Heroes Walk Around the World was founded.
