This page will be updated every few months with our ‘Object of the Moment’ blog which features some treasures from our collection and usually relate to current exhibitions or peace events throughout history.
Blogs are written by our staff and volunteers.

A blog post for Conscientious Objectors' Day 2021 exploring one of the museum's new acquisitions: an autograph book signed by conscientious objectors at Wakefield Work House during the First World War.
As part of our #SupportOurMuseums crowdfunding campaign to help build the future of The Peace Museum, 20 ambassadors have chosen 20 objects from our collection.
