Asia Pacific Peace Museum_White Horizont

Opening to the public now 


This museum is dedicated to peace. 

But there can be no peace without an acknowledgement of historical facts. 

This museum is dedicated to the struggle for a world without war. 

But there can be no absence of war without our knowing the suffering of the other. 

This museum is dedicated to a better future for our children.

But this future cannot arrive without the dream and the labour of forgiveness. 

This museum exists because of the joy that underlies the trust that goodness is inextinguishable and will triumph.

Our History

ALPHA Education's two-decade-long education work has improved people's knowledge of WWII in Asia and increased youth participation in the pioneering of a peace and reconciliation movement. Many who have resigned to eighty years of historical silence begin to see hope. As such, ALPHA Education strives to build a museum in Toronto Canada to further promote humanity and peace education through a critical understanding of the history of WWII in Asia.

After the war, Holocaust museums and education centres were erected all over the world to educate people about the history of the German Nazi Holocaust and provide them with a space to reflect upon the atrocities committed in Europe during WWII. The Asia-Pacific Peace Museum will provide a similar platform for humanity education in the context of the history of WWII in Asia.


Although there are institutions dedicated to revealing individual atrocities during WWII in Asia, such as the Memorial Hall of the Victims in Nanjing Massacre by Japanese Invaders in Nanjing, the Unit 731 Museum in Harbin dedicated to studying Japanese biological weapons, the War and Women's Human Rights Museum in Seoul dedicated to documenting the Japanese military sexual slavery system, and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum, there are currently no museums that exhibit and explore the history of WWII in Asia in its entirety.
