Fredens Hus [House of Peace] is a modern experience-based museum of peace and human rights and is located at Uppsala Castle. Here you can visit exhibitions about, among other things, vulnerability, human rights and peace profiles like Dag Hammarskjöld, Alva Myrdal, Malaya Yousafzai and Raoul Wallenberg.
The aim is to counteract racism, violence, prejudice and intolerance through educational activities and exhibitions with a focus on children and young people. It is about peace work at grassroots level, resolving conflicts in everyday life, and practising using dialogue instead of violence. Fredens Hus is run by a non-profit organisation that has been working in Dag Hammarskjöld’s spirit since 2006.
