Not only is this building so beautiful inside and outside, it has played such a major part in Derry's history. The free museum inside clearly explains what 'plantation',in Irish terms, means....something I knew so little about. The museum is designed to interest children and adults. The building is stunning.

Perfect to learn more about Derry and Irish history, in a beautiful old place, with a nice architecture. The interactive animation to show the different opinions in Irish conflict was very interesting. The security officer at the entrance was really welcoming and helpful, which seems to be an innate quality in Ireland. Furthermore, that was a pleasure to leave that... More

Stunning stained glass with every pane telling a story. We had tour guide Gerry from the guild who explained each stained glass window to a group of us. So much history packed into one building. definitely worth a visit!

This is a magnificent building. The outside is impressive, but inside are stained glass windows that are just amazing. If you are in Derry, this is a must see! In addition to the windows and the other interior design features, there is a small exhibit space. It is just outside the city walls near the Tower Museum.
