I found it a terrible loss of innocent lives. I felt this was an unprovoked show of power & a totally unnecessary attack on peaceful protesters. Made me feel angry & sad at the same time.

Our tour guide climbed aboard to take us to different sites in Derry, and tell us the history of this place. This memorial may seem plain and unimpressive, but the history behind it brings a lot of emotion to the surface. Like another reviewer, the U2 song was running through my head the whole time I was here.

We had a very detailed taxi tour which gave a great insight.Our driver knew the city inside out so it was wonderful to see all the places which meant so much to him. It was sad to see places which were part of the 30 years of the 'troubles '. Derry seems to be such a quiet and friendly city... More

The memorial itself is quite small, but depicts the feeling of the area well. Go and read the inscriptions as part of your walk around Free Derry Corner and don't miss the Free Derry museum illustrating the more personal side of the 'Troubles'. Easy walk from the city centre.

The memorial itself is small in stature, but the emotions that go along with it are large. Couldn't help but put the U2 song through my thoughts while there.

If you have a special interest in the Troubles and Bloody Sunday this might interest you but to the casual observer it is just another piece of stone

Truthful, sad, museum depicting the day 18 young people were innocently killed during a peaceful protest. It took 30 some odd years for the truth to finally come out and the Brits admitted fault, and apologies.

There are refrigerator badges of this landmark for sale in shops throughout the city. Scene of barracades in times past now a monument to the plain people of the area and their proud attempt to get justice for the events of that awful Sunday of the past.

This was a moving monument to the struggles that the people of the region experienced in the late 20th century. . The Free Derry monument is surrounded by murals painted on the sides of buildings that memorialize those that fell at Bloody Sunday and subsequent struggles. I was moved by the quiet of the place, as I recalled the questions... More

We signed up for a tour at the Museum of Free Derry. Our guide, Ozzie, had participated in the Troubles so it was an especially interesting tour. We wished we'd had a chance to do a similar tour in Belfast.
