About the "International Day of Peace"

In 2020, too, as part of the UN-led International Day of Peace on September 21, the education team at the Styrian Armoury and History Museum invite participants to reflect on war and peace, under the title Tired of War, Ready for Peace?

With varied programmes and offerings, we investigate the causes and consequences of war, the conditions for peace, and to what extent we, as individuals, carry responsibility for always, constantly being on the look-out for signs of war gathering.

 

11 am (GER), 12:30pm (EN) and 2pm (GER)

Language: English
Meeting place: Foyer, Styrian Armoury
Price: € 2.50 per person (not including admission)

The one-hour tour through the world’s largest historical weapons arsenal at its original location shows the many layers of themes surrounding armed conflicts.

Please note: In order to protect and preserve the historic site there are no signs and text available about our artefacts in the exhibition rooms. A tour will ensure you enjoy your visit, alternatively you can ask our front desk staff for a free visitors' guide, get the app or rent an audio guide (available in English, Italian and German).

Individual dates for guided tours in German and English, both for private groups and for companies of at least 7 persons, can be booked at least one week in advance.
