Peace Museum Vienna is a very ambitious and meaningful project located in Vienna, Austria’s capital city. The museum strives to contribute to world peace by educating the public about peace heroes. The museum provides a physical space, which serves as a meeting point for discussions on peace, an exhibition hall, a center for the presentation of movies and documentaries as well as its wonderful peace kitchen events. It is also an educational meeting point and offers information sources for students, teachers, professors, and general visitors. Peace education is the central to both the current and long-term vision of Peace Museum Vienna. Peace Museum Vienna is also known for its 'Windows for Peace’ project which is the first World’s Street Peace Museum. As a street museum, it is open twenty four hours a day and charges no admission fees! The 'Windows for Peace’ are concentrated in and around Stephansplatz in the center of Vienna. The windows are accompanied by posters and brief biographies of Peace Heroes.
