Have you noticed that there are no museums celebrating our Peace Corps service? The Museum of the Peace Corps Experience has been working to fill this gap—first, with an online presence, and ultimately with our own museum in Washington, D.C.
The Museum is now actively seeking wide participation from former volunteers. We are seeking artifacts and the stories associated with them. The photographs and stories you send to us via email could soon become a part of our online “virtual” museum. As we move toward a brick-and-mortar museum, we will be accepting donations of physical artifacts. Not quite ready to give up that piece of Tunisian jewelry? That’s OK – we still want to have an image or two of your favorite item(s) – and the stories behind their acquisition.
Take a look at a few of the other virtual exhibits we have collected so far:

We look forward to hearing from you!
