    In collaboration with Civil Society Organizations in Freetown, the Sierra Leone Peace Museum conducts Outreach Programs and Mobile exhibitions in the Provinces and Districts in Sierra Leone, to engage people on the issues of peace, justice and reconciliation. The Mobile Exhibition helps to bring the museum to the people through educational outreach programs that tell the story of the war and educate the people on the importance of sustainable peace in Sierra Leone. The mobile exhibition has visited schools in Sierra Leone’s up-country, with the aim of educating those who were too young to have experienced the war themselves or to have lived through its aftermath.

    Students, Tourists and Researchers often visit the Sierra Leone Peace Museum in groups to learn about the causes and effects of war in Sierra Leone, the work of the SCSL and the RSCSL, the restoration of peace in Sierra Leone and how to maintain peace in the Country. The students are guided through the Museum with the help of Tour Guides. Group visits are highly interactive as visitors are allowed to share their thoughts and ask questions about the topics discussed. Researchers have the opportunity of accessing significant historical documents such as the Special Court Public Archives and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) records. The public records enhance access for academics, journalists, civil society members and the general public to one of the richest sources of information about the conflict in Sierra Leone. This increased accessibility will assist the national legal system to use the Court’s jurisprudence in national cases.
