Currently in a temporary location

It's smaller than I expected, but it's also set up in a temporary location while they finish renovating their permanent building.

Very helpful staff who have all been involved in events known as The troubles' - very knowledgeable. It was interesting to have a historical perspective from the Nationalist point of view and it really made us think. A small museum that had information boards, a slideshow (bit outdated but interesting) and some computer information - but enough to really get... More

Very interesting especially for overseas visitors it is worth going to see even though we live in N. Ireland we learned so much while visiting this museum. The people are so willing to talk and answer questions. The museum has a great selection of books, photos,from that terrible day.

Accurate tapes and photos from that infamous day, Bloody Sunday.You can listen and hear the shots, the screams as the RUC shot into an unarmed crowd. The owner is a lovely man who witnessed the horror and lost a love one. this should never happen again and the people should carry on their quest for peace and justice

The last walled city in Europe and one of the few with it's walls virtually entirely intact. Full of little surprises and the walls are a delight to walk. And don't forget to leave the walls for a visit across the Peace Bridge, the Guild Hall, the Bogside and many other places of interest.

While the real highlight is the Free Derry Walking Tour, the museum provides some background information.

As an Australian of Irish Descent I had long wanted to Visit Derry Bu the Troubles Prevented That in the Past but the Exhibits Showed the Trauma that the Residents Faced in these Times and I throughly recommend A visit the Surrounding Area Contains A number of Memorials AND The murals of the Bogside Artists
