The Peace and Reconciliation Gallery within the Herbert Museum reflects Coventry’s experience of war and the city’s post-war commitment to reconciliation. It explores themes of friendship, peace, and reconciliation at local, regional and international levels.
In the history section of the museum are some items from the 2-tone era, created by Coventry musicians in the late 1970s with a black and white logo representing the desire to transcend and defuse racial tensions in Britain.
The Herbert also has a gallery of paintings illustrating the life and legend of Lady Godiva.
