The American Museum of Peace, A Building for Peace
The American Museum of Peace (AMP) is incorporated in Washington, DC as an educational 501(c)(3) organization and plans to establish a physical presence in the District of Columbia. The AMP is seeking a central D.C. location with easy access for all visitors. With an active calendar of programs and special events, the AMP requires a location with ample space for workshops, performances and seminars in addition to prime space allocated for exhibits, cafe and store. We welcome your support and suggestions.
AMPeace.org has been launched to provide a glimpse of the vision, exhibits and programs of the AMP. Return often. Join us as the AMP grows. Help us honor the principles that give peace. Discover the rich history of American peacemaking. Explore the attributes of peace and the efforts involved in creating greater peace at home and abroad.
The American Museum of Peace (AMP) will be located in Washington, D.C. in a central location that is easily and safely accessible. We are currently looking for a site that would be accessible to local, national and international visitors with ample street and garage parking and in close proximity to the Washington D.C. Metro.
Visit the AMP Cafe
We look forward to the day when AMP Café is open to offer delicious vegetarian and vegan refreshments; when you can stop in for a cup of soup, a refreshing juice, a hot cup of coffee or a sandwich on your way to or from AMP exhibits or programs. School groups and families will be able to request a daily lunch-box to enjoy in the café or as take-out.
The AMP will use its theaters, stage and conference rooms for hosting seminars, lecture series and group activities related to peace. Customize your visit by accessing a wide range of stories about Americans committed to peace via computer consoles, iPAD-like kiosks and the AMP resource library. Participate in interactive workshops designed to encourage reflective thinking, creative expression and skills development.
The American Museum of Peace will be a vibrant center that explores the attitudes, attributes and approaches to peace.
For where there is not Love; there is Fear: But perfect Love casts out Fear.
William Penn (1644 – 1718)
Out and About
Once the American Museum of Peace (AMP) is established with a physical location in Washington, DC, you’ll be able to join us for a matinee or evening concert, a screening or theatrical performance. Drawing on the rich diversity of American culture, the AMP will present literature, music, art and film that portray the power of love, compassion and forgiveness to heal and resolve conflict and the ways united purpose helps us to meet life’s challenges and progress. Until that time, AMP will present programs in various locations throughout DC and beyond.
A beautifully landscaped meditation garden will be enhanced by sculpture and sacred texts of major faiths and traditions affirming the oneness of the human family, the interdependent nature of creation and the qualities that give peace.
