The Tehran Peace Museum

Currently housed in a building donated by the municipality of Tehran within the historic City Park, the Tehran Peace Museum is as much an interactive peace center as a museum. It coordinates a peace education program that holds workshops and hosts conferences on the culture of peace, reconciliation, international humanitarian law, disarmament and peace advocacy. 


Additionally, the museum houses a documentary studio that provides a workspace wherein the individual stories of victims of warfare can be captured and archived for the historical record. The museum's peace library includes a collection of literature on international law, the implementation of peace and oral histories of veterans and victims of war. Permanent and rotating peace-related art exhibitions displaying the work of amateur international and Iranian artists are also housed in the museum complex. Finally the Iranian secretariat for the international organization "Mayors for Peace" is housed in the Tehran Peace museum.
