Divided into three areas, this museum conveys its message powerfully: the first section explores the concept of peace through the speeches of famous figures (Martin Luther King, Gandhi, Chateaubriand etc); the second looks at the tragic story of Guernica (admirably brought to life using reconstruction techniques); the third analyses the issues of today (Basque Separatism, political prisoners, torture etc).
