The Peace Museum is Moving to Salts Mill

The Peace Museum has received a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant of £245,651 towards our ‘IMAGINE: Creating The Peace Museum of the Future’ project. Made possible by money raised by National Lottery players, the project will create brand-new public exhibition and engagement spaces at Salts Mill in Saltaire. We are aiming to reopen the museum to the public in summer 2024.

Supported through The National Lottery Heritage Fund, the funding will be used to create engaging and accessible exhibitions, and to develop a dedicated learning space in our new home. Opening in these new premises will create many more opportunities for visitors, researchers, and community groups to explore the diverse range of stories told by the our collection.

With Salts Mill being a key Bradford landmark and located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Saltaire, we’re confident that opening at this venue will allow a larger number of people to freely access peace history for the foreseeable future.

We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us over the years, particularly while we’ve been closed to the public. We are still fundraising to support the costs of reopening the museum, including expanding our team to help us to welcome more visitors.
