"Atlanta has a great significance...Visionaries such as Mahatma Gandhi and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. have shown us that successful changes can be brought about nonviolently. I believe that, at the basic human level, most of us wish to be peaceful." 
-His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama, Presidential Distinguished Professor at Emory University

"Atlanta has a heritage with universal significance which provides the foundations for a world of peace and justice."
-Dr. Peter van den Dungen,
The International Network of Museums for Peace

"We fully support the mission of the Global Peace Museum (GPM). Their goal of securing the retired space-shuttle ATLANTIS as GPM's cornerstone exhibit was audacious."
-Louis D'Amore, Founder, International Institute for Peace through Tourism

"Atlanta: City of Peace has an opportunity to magnetize peace consciousness...May Peace be in Atlanta and from Atlanta may it spread the world over!"
Fumi Johns Stewart (NY) Executive Director- World Peace Prayer Society




GPM TEAM
Until the GPM Board is fully assembled, we invite everyone (local-global) to help develop this historic project with the GPM’s developing Board of Advisers and Trustees, as well as ACP’s Team of Inspirations.


EXPANDED NETWORK
One of our distinguished advisers, Dr. Peter van den Dungen, is the General Coordinator for The International Network of Museums for Peace. The GPM became the 83rd peace museum of the world and now connects to the 82 others through which we will collaborate and exchange exhibits. 


Atlanta: City of Peace collaborates with individuals, institutions, and organizations to help us accomplish our global peace mission. 

The Global Peace Museum (GPM)
JOIN OUR HISTORIC GLOBAL PEACE INITIATIVE 


MISSION
The Global Peace Museum celebrates the goodness of our global family.

VISION

The Global Peace Museum, Inc. (GPM) is an Atlanta: City of Peace (ACP) project to celebrate and promote the great peace legacies of Gandhi & Dr. King, two of the world's most admired peace-builders

The GPM will especially focus upon the many positive things going on around the world and within our Global Family. It will propel Global Citizenship, Justice and Peace by educating us about our Global Family's advancements in teamwork, tourism, trade, and travel.
 

We are in the process of developing grand-scale and smaller GPM exhibit concepts. An integral component to all the concepts is promoting the idea that we are essentially one big Global Family.


LOCATION

Since tourism is the world's biggest peace industry, our dream is to develop this new international tourist destination next to "ATL: The World’s Busiest Airport."

We have identified a prime seven-acre plot that is exactly between the airport and Georgia International Convention Center. The future GPM will be readily accessible by the ATL Sky Train and MARTA-Atlanta's rapid transit. Verner Johnson. Inc., one of the world’s top museum design firms, is an interested contender in designing the museum.

In advance of the GPM bricks-and-mortar institution, we are also developing "The World’s Biggest Virtual Peace Museum." Nationally-ranked web design companies may contact us with proposals. 

Peace belongs to us all
