The museum is operated by Conrad Grebel University College and the Mennonite Historical Society of Ontario.

Since its founding in 1976, Project Ploughshares has promoted the concept of "common security": that security is the product of mutuality, not competition; that peace must be nurtured rather than guarded; that stability requires the reduction of threat and elevation of trust; and that sustainability depends on participatory decision-making rather than on exclusion and control. Project Ploughshares promotes disarmament and demilitarization, the peaceful resolution of political conflict, and the pursuit of security based on equity, justice, and a sustainable environment.
