Attraction details
Owner description: The award-winning Museum of Free Derry recently re-opened its doors in the Bogside following an extensive redevelopment and offers a full multi-media exhibition on the civil rights and early conflict era in the city, including Battle of the Bogside, Internment, Bloody Sunday and Operation Motorman. The museum was established by the Bloody Sunday Trust in 2006 to tell the story of the civil rights movement and the creation of Free Derry in the 1960s and 1970s, and it has become an important part of Ireland’s radical and civil rights heritage. It tells the story of how a largely working class community rose up against the years of oppression it had endured. The struggle of Free Derry is part of a wider struggle in Ireland and internationally for freedom and equality for all. In 2018, the Museum of Free Derry was named Authentic NI Experience of the Year at the Northern Ireland Tourism Awards in Belfast. Admission Price (as of July 2018) Adults - £6 Student/Conc - £5 Groups 10+ - £4

The museum explores the history of Free Derry in a multi-media way, with audio, visual and many artefacts to examine. It provides an experience that is both informative and emotional.

This museum has an amazing display of the history and sad events that occurred in Derry. We were shown around by someone who had personal accounts from Bloody Sunday, which made it so much more interesting and real. It is laid out really well so you get the full idea of events from start to finish. This is well worth a visit.

We went straight after our tour of the Bogside and thus gained reduced price entry. Recordings and artifacts surrounding Bloody Sunday And Free Derry. Very good

The Museum of Free Derry provides a balanced historical review of the "Troubles". A unique blend of memorabilia, print and film provides a sense of this tragedy.
