Welcome to the Museum of the Peace Corps Experience
The Committee for a Museum of the Peace Corps Experience (CMPCE) is devoted to sharing Peace Corps stories
~ President John F. Kennedy, March 1, 1961.
Since President John F. Kennedy introduced the Peace Corps almost sixty years ago more than 220,000 American women and men of all ages have served in a variety of assignments in 140 countries. While working in cross-cultural environments, volunteers acquire records of their experiences and come home with many stories and artifacts from their service abroad.
