The Peace Rooms Museum in the Villa Lindenhof are more than just a museum. They are interactive places where visitors are invited to get to grips with peace issues through their eyes, ears and fingers. This is an intercultural and interfaith forum that is designed to allow peace issues to be individually experienced and explored: here you will not find peace displayed behind glass cabinets.
Museum of peace
Instead, the various rooms are designed to raise your awareness of peace issues and encourage you to get actively involved. Check out the inspiring declarations of love in the Reading Room and stop off at the In-Between Room, where you may find yourself stopped in your tracks. The Listening Room features music on themes of peace and violence and the Garden Room invites you to spend time talking about peace.
Decide where you want to sit when you reach the Decision Room. Sink onto a royal throne or a stool and think about how a particular kind of seat can conjure an image of friend or foe. In this museum, the value of peace is spelled out and presented in its relation to violence and aggression.
The Peace Rooms Museum also host a wide range of events that look at how to handle conflict situations and attempt to inspire the desire, energy and vision to fight for a more just and peaceful world.
Tip: After visiting the museum, take a stroll through the Lindenhofpark, which was laid out in the 19th century.
