Inspiring the Next Generations
Integrating History Into Your Curriculum
Education is at the heart of our mission. By offering specialized tours, interactive exhibits and programs, we strive to provide an ideal environment for learning and reflection. Whether you teach these lessons here or on your own campus, we want to help.
The Museum is coordinating with local universities and teachers to offer Professional Development courses for K-12 teachers. The Dayton Peace Institute will be under the umbrella of the International Peace Museum and will begin in early 2023.
