The International Peace Museum has moved into its new home. The museum was previously located in a historic home on W. Monument Avenue before relocating to its current space in Courthouse Plaza SW at 10 N. Ludlow St. on Courthouse Square. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held for the new space last week on The Museum’s 18th birthday. The new, larger location features a cafe and kitchen area, wall space for permanent and temporary exhibits, a classroom, meeting space, and a stage equipped with professional audio and video equipment. The museum will hold its first public event at 7 p.m. this Thursday, June 2, with an exhibit opening for “The Chicago Freedom Movement,” which will be on display in the museum through the end of July. The International Peace Museum will then have regular business hours of 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday with special events occasionally planned during the week. Regular admission is $5 per person.
