We really enjoyed our visit to the museum and its friendly helpful staff. We learned a lot about the general area and the history of the Maiden city

A really great place to start to comprehend the people and past of this complex city. The exhibits were visual and engaging -- The Story of Derry was very moving, with many personal touches which made it fascinating. My husband stopped to read everything and the kids were drawn to the dioramas, photos, display cases and movies. Top notch. Interestingly laid out over 5 floors and you can go outside on the top of the tower. Friendly and helpful staff, too, who talked about the history but also gave us tips on where to find a nice lunch. Highly recommended!

This museum was very good. Certainly worth the time it took to go through and for some reason it was only 1 Pound, which I think was a limited time special or something. Great historical insight for someone that had never been to Ireland before.....Thank You!

The exhibit was great, staff helpful and it only cost me £3 or so.
I didnt expect the spanish armada section which was fascinating, and I like how this museum dealt with the recent history of londonderry/derry, which in a divide place like this cant be easy

I found this museum good to get more information on the history of Northern Ireland. Worth a visit to get this history if you dont know it.
