The paper is based on findings from museum shops in national defence museums in Verdun, Paris, London, Copenhagen and Stockholm. The author deals with how peace and war memorials referring to historical contexts are used in connection with children and how national defence museum shops address children. Some comparative conclusions are drawn from concepts of the commercial, existential and political use of history and gender. Keywords: war and peace memorials, defence museum, children and use of history, gender
