    Journey through the poignant chapters of Northern Ireland's past and explore the community's legacy of resilience.

    The Museum of Free Derry stands as an important tribute to a pivotal era in the city's history. The museum chronicles Northern Ireland’s struggle for civil rights from the late 1960s through to the 1970s and the subsequent conflict known as “The Troubles". Established in 2006 by the Bloody Sunday Trust, the museum can be found in the same area where the original events unfolded, giving visitors a tangible connection to the past. Its multimedia exhibit holds over 25,000 items relating to the city’s history. It's a story told through photographs, rare documents and personal accounts, which give an insightful overview of the period's social and political landscape, including the Battle of the Bogside, internment and Bloody Sunday.

    One of the museum's most interesting features is the recreated street scene, transporting visitors back to the tense atmosphere of Free Derry during the height of the city’s civil rights movement. The demonstration is further enhanced by nearby interactive displays and audio recordings, creating an unforgettable, immersive experience. The Museum of Free Derry also hosts educational programs and community events aimed at promoting peace and equality. In preserving the memory of Free Derry, the museum honours the resilience of its people and stands as a testament to the power of remembrance.
