The Siege Museum is now located in temporary premises at 16 Bishop Street.
The Apprentice Boys of Derry Association is established for the purpose of commemorating the anniversaries of the shutting of the Gates and the Relief of Londonderry. The Memorial Hall and museum is dedicated to the history and heritage of the Siege of Londonderry 1688-1689.
The Memorial Hall was built originally in 1873 and extended in 1936. Designed originally by John Guy Ferguson and recently renovated. The building is neo-gothic, with a strong Scottish baronial façade. Includes a good museum of local items. It contains fine examples of meeting rooms for each of the Loyal Orders; while its museum contains artefacts and video presentations relating to the Siege of Londonderry and the Apprentice Boys Association.
It is a Listed building.
As major refurbishment and upgrades take place at the Memorial Hall as well as the the building of a new Heritage Centre, the Siege Museum has moved to temporary premises in 16 Bishop Street.
