Sierra Leone’s decade-long conflict finally ended in January 2002 leaving behind a country in need of truth, reconciliation and justice. The Museum will honour and remember the victims of the war and will aim to ensure that the lessons of the conflict are never forgotten. It will also seek to provide a place for discussion, study and reflection on a significant part of Sierra Leone’s history relating to the decade long conflict and peace process. The Peace Museum has been established on the former premises of the Special Court for Sierra Leone and in the coming two years will be adding to its collection and opening additional exhibits. The first phase of the Peace Museum will open in November 2013, and will contain exhibits which tell the story of Sierra Leone’s recent history, both in peace and war time.
