"Museums for Peace"
in 33 Categories

N.B. Numbers in the following paragraphs need to be revised.

Click here for a selection of these museums which have on-line videos.

The Concept: The concept of "museums for peace" dates from May 2005 when the International Network of Peace Museums (INPM) changed its name to the International Network of Museums for Peace (INMP) "in order to further develop cooperation with a wider range of institutons such as museums, galleries, and libraries working for peace as well as other peace projects." Unfortunately, the INMP has subsequently done very little to define, identify, recruit, or support "museums for peace," and many such museums have still never heard of the INMP or even of the concept of "museums for peace."

The Definition: As the old name implied, the original members of the INPM were mostly "anti-war museums" or "peace museums," and they generally defined "peace" as the absense of war. But, even from the beginning of the INPM in 1992, many "peace museums" were adopting broader and broader meanings of the word "peace." The 2005 name change recognized (1) that "peace" has many meanings, (2) that the role of "peace museums" can and should be broader than just the absense of war, and (3) that many museums without the word "peace" their names also work "for peace" and are therefore like-minded institutions. The INMP statute adopted in October 2008 says that "museums, galleries, and libraries working for peace" are collectively called "museums for peace."

This List: The list at the bottom of this webpage is one person's effort and has no official status. Its objective is to indentify as many museums as possible which display and interpret a specific war (or range of wars) and/or other forms of violence (such as abuse, prejudice, and discrimination) which interfere with the realization of human potential. Such museums usually suggest ways in whch future wars can be prevented (or other forms of violence overcome) -- often by way of interpreting a specific historic example (or range of examples). This list identifies 493 such "museums for peace" worldwide. They are sorted into 33 mutually exclusive categories (averaging 14.9 museums per category) in order to explore different aspects of the "museums for peace" concept. Within each category, museums are identified with national flags -- to show how they are distributed geographically -- and with the year of their opening or dedication -- to show how they came into being over time.

Geographic Distribution: Of the 493 listed museums, 247 (50.1 percent) are in the USA and Canada, 133 (27.0 percent) are in Europe, 29 (5.9 percent) in Japan, 45 (9.1 percent) in other Asian countries, and 39 (7.9 percent) in all other countries. The list undoubtdly undercounts museums in non-Western countries -- and overcounts museums in the USA and Canada -- because of language, internet accessibility, and other data collection biases. But the list nevertheless also reflects the cultural and historic diversity of North America and corrects the gross underrepresentation of the USA and Canada on previous lists.

INMP "Membership:" The INMP decided in October 2008 to collect annual dues and to keep formal membership records, but there is no way for the public to know if this policy has been implemented or not, so there is still no way of identifying museums (or individuals) which actually "belong" to the INMP (despite language to the contrary on the INMP website). The INMP logo is used below to identify 60 museums (12.2 percent of the total) which are known to be associated with the INMP on the basis of their participation in INMP conferences and/or board meetings. Many, if not most, of the 433 other listed museums have probably never even heard of the INMP.

Other Lists: Since the INMP does not yet define "museums for peace" or identify its "member" institutions, all lists of "museums for peace" are unofficial, and most are the products of a small group or of a single individual using the internet as a primary source of information. Here are two examples: (1) For the most recent list (199 museums as of October 2009) compiled by Steve Fryberg, INMP website administrtor in Dayton, Ohio (USA), click here for the INMP website, then click "Members" [sic]. (2) For two lists (totaling 203 museums) published in October 2008 by Kazuyo Yamane in Kochi (Japan), click here for her "List of [138] Museums for Peace in the World except Japan," and click here for her "List of [65] Museums for Peace in Japan." (See Bibliography for specific citations.)

Differences: Every list is compiled using different objective criteria and is subject to different personal prejudices. The list of 493 museums at the bottom of this webpage endeavors (1) to expand the number of museums listed within each of its 33 categories, (2) to screen out libraries, peace studies programs, and other institutions which do not offer museum-like exhibits to the public, and (3) to exclude virtual (on-line) museums (which are not physical and permanent), traveling "museums" (with no fixed location), and "want to be" museums (whose propects for actual realization appear to be problematic).
