Since August 2019, the Albert Schweitzer Museum has been undergoing a makeover. In the footsteps of the Nobel Peace Prize winner, in the heart of his native village, the Schweitzer Centre will reopen its doors to the public on 2 August 2023. This unique place in Alsace will be based on Albert Schweitzer's work for peace to show that peace is everyone's business. It will offer a new approach, educational and fun, based on the values of Albert Schweitzer.
The Schweitzer Centre focuses on the notion of the Nobel Peace Prize and its current resonance. It is dedicated to the promotion of the universalist notion of Peace, which is present in all of Albert Schweitzer's work. Peace, the driving force behind Albert Schweitzer's work, is approached from different angles and in a logical progression, enabling all visitors to become aware of the universal and timeless nature of the thought of Albert Schweitzer, Nobel Peace Prize winner. A large part of the exhibition is devoted to museography and scenography, in order to highlight the content of the collections and to integrate new technologies into the displays, thus contributing to the quality of the exhibition.
Réouverture du nouveau centre Schweitzer dédié à la paix, le 2 août 2023 ! Le Centre Schweitzer vous accueille du mercredi au lundi de 10h à 13h et de 14h à 18h (fermeture hebdomadaire le mardi).

Temporary exhibition “Parallel Universes” by Ugur Gallenkus
From 1 September to 31 December 2023
For its first temporary exhibition, the Schweitzer Center has chosen to present the work of Turkish artist Uğur Gallenkuş. A unique look at the contrasts and inequalities between the populations of the globe. Through the game of photomontage, the Turkish artist seeks to arouse the viewer's empathy by juxtaposing journalistic images of countries at war with scenes of peaceful life in the Western world.
The artist's first book, Parallel Universes of Children , was published in 2020 on World Children's Day. You can find it in our store.
