In 2018 and 2019, our Learning and Engagement Officer, Shannen Johnson, teamed up up Emily Elsworth, Education Assistant, Royal Armouries to undertake a research project into how sensitive histories around war and peace are approached in museum learning. The research was funded through the GEM Yorkshire and Humber ReachOUT Bursary and took Shannen and Emily around the country and to Amsterdam to undertake research at different museum sites.

In March 2019 a study day was held at The Peace Museum with other museum professionals around the country discussing the research.
