There is no time left for anything
but to make peacework a dimension of our every waking activity.
Elise Boulding (1920 – 2010)
The American Museum of Peace (AMP) presents a new American narrative, embracing the intention for peace that has been central to the vision of America from the beginning and the principles that support peace. The AMP celebrates Americans’ aspirations and work for peace. The AMP remembers those who have come before us: their vision, drive and determination; the examples they modeled, the lessons they learned and taught.
The AMP is a place to explore the attitudes and attributes of peace, a place that helps us see that there are possibilities and opportunities to create peace all around us. The AMP reminds us that peace is ours now to choose.
Incorporated in Washington, DC as an educational 501(c)(3) organization, the American Museum of Peace is seeking a physical location in our nation’s capital. This website, AMPeace.org, provides a glimpse of the vision and an introduction to the scope of exhibits and programs offered at the American Museum of Peace that we might be inspired to continue the work to build a more perfect union and a more peaceful world.
Peace is not absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means.
Ronald Reagan (1911 – 2004)
