Museum of Free Derry Reviews
Visited here today with my husband. Very informative, educational and emotive experience. Easy walk from city Centre and worth the effort. more »

I wanted to learn more about the history of the city during the clashes and Bloody Sunday and the Free Derry Museum is the perfect place. The duration of the visit is not too long and the information is concise. Without feeling like I was reading a book, I still learned a lot!! A must do to Derry!
Wonderful little museum that explores the wealth of history and culture in Derry, beginning from its founding and continuing through modern times. The layout of the museum was a bit tough to navigate at crowded times, as you follow a chronological sequence (provided on a map from the entry desk). So when many people are viewing at once, it is tough to view and hear each video segment or read the smaller text on the walls. However, definitely worth a couple hours' visit!
Exhibit organization is slightly confusing so be sure you keep the map they give you at the beginning! Everyone I encountered was very welcoming and there is a great community feel here. I came in 45 minutes before closing and couldn’t get through everything; they let me come back the next day free of charge. :)
