Why a Museum of the Troubles and the peace process?

A Museum of the Troubles and the Peace Process is a  place to tell stories, explore identity and work towards an understanding of our past.

A place where Northern Irish, Irish, and British people, can engage with each other and reflect and learn from their experiences of the Troubles and the Peace Process.

A place where visitors from other conflict zones can learn about our conflict and apply the lessons of our peace process to their own turbulent situation.

A major visitor experience that attracts visitors from home and abroad, thereby boosting employment and export earnings for the Northern Ireland economy.

THE VISION

The vision is to bring into being a Museum of the Troubles and the Peace Process that addresses the conflict in all its complexity, that celebrates the resilience of people in their everyday lives during the conflict, and that pays tribute to the courage and creativity of those who delivered the peace.

Our role is to act as a catalyst for such an initiative. To that end we would like to work with the major potential stakeholders and help bring them together to realise a project that is both economically beneficial and socially desirable. We view a Museum of the Troubles and the Peace Process as one of the vital passage ways into a shared future.
