“A Must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

More a close up look at reality of life than simple history. No problem for wheelchair bound. Near city sights and amenities.

“very informative and extremely moving”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Well worth a visit after you have visited the Tower Museum in Derry. This is a civil rights collection with particular focus on the Battle of The Bogside and Bloody Sunday. I found it very moving.

Small museum displaying history of Bloody Sunday. Extremely interesting and well laid out. Well worth the hour plus we spent there.

“Getting a clearer picture of Derry's past”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

It is not a big museum and although there are some exhibits and film it is mainly boards with information which you can read. The museum staff member was very friendly and helpful. You get a better understandng of the complex history of the city and the timeline of events. Alongside a look at the big murals on the gable ends it is a fairly poignant experience but you do come away feeling that there might be the beginnings of a brighter future for the city.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

the museum is very standard, but if your interested in what happpened in ireland, then you will find this very interesting and informative. its very sad what happened on bloody sunday and it really brings back the memories. we also did the walking tour and found it really interesting and would do it again and highly recommend a visit to both of these.
