a view of the peace gallery on the 2nd floor of the museum in Leeds

Peace - Farewell to Arms?

Farewell to Arms? has been created in conjunction with The Peace Museum, Bradford. It focuses on the idea of CONVERSION: from war to peace; from weapons and armour to useful tools or symbolic images.

The display explores the positive changes that have been – and are still being – made by individuals, groups and whole nations that choose to replace conflict with peace.

This gallery is located within the War Gallery. Below is only a small selection of the items you can see in the gallery on the 2nd floor of the museum in Leeds.
