The museum is located in the famous Bogside area of Derry which witnessed some of the key events of the conflict including the Battle of the Bogside and Bloody Sunday. It explores the period from August 1972 to May 2007 to explain how the conflict evolved into the peace process and the impact of both on the local area.

The museum uses artefacts, oral history, archive footage, interactive features and unique displays to explain how the Agreement was reached, its implementation and its potential implications for the future of the island. It also features the key role played by three Bogsiders - John Hume, Martin McGuinness and Mitchel McLaughlin - in creating the conditions that have led to the peace we all enjoy today.

All three men played a key role in developing the 1998 Good Friday Agreement which provided a political template for resolving the conflict and a future which could be determined on the principle of consent.

There is also a particular focus within the museum on the role played by local female activists in moving local society forward. The Peacemakers museum details how local people resiliently endured decades of conflict until the peace was won.
