The Peacemakers Museum closed its doors for the last time on 26 October 2014.
The Peacemakers museum presents an exhibition of Nobel laureates, men and women from all corners of the globe who have dedicated their lives to make the world a better place.
The Nobel laureates are an example to all of us individuals can do extraordinary things and that the decisions we make and the actions we take in our lives can changes the world. The exhibition celebrates the Nobel Peace Prize Laureates but in particular the South African ones: Albert Luthuli, Desmond Tutu, FW de Klerk and Nelson Mandela.
The dove is a symbol of peace throughout the world and takes an important place in the exhibition. Indeed, the paper doves in the exhibition signify the efforts of all our Nobel Peace Prize Laureates in working towards peace, justice, equality and freedom for all of humankind. As a symbol of their own commitment to these values, the visitors are invited to make a paper dove to add to the exhibition.
The Peacemakers Museum has been created by The South African Gold Coin Exchange to taking forward the message of peace and supporting the ongoing legacy of the South African Peace Laureates. For this reason the Museum has established relationships with the Nobel Institute, the Nelson Mandela Foundation and the FW de Klerk Foundation, with each institution benefiting from royalties generated by The South African Gold Coin Exchange.
