I have visited this on many occasions. They have got the history of the Apprentice Boys, numerous flags & banners. There is also a bar that also does food in the building, at times you can have a good sing song going

Greeted with open arms and made to feel very welcome, these people are still living under siege to this day, but their spirit remains unbroken.

The Siege Museum is now opened in the building next door to the Apprentice Boys Memorial Hall and it is well worth the visit. The Museum is now on 3 floors telling the story of the Siege and the Apprentice Boys and is state of the Art, it's well worth the visit.

This is definitely worth a visit if your in the city, there is so much to learn about The Siege during 1688 and 1689. Old items such as cannon balls, guns, memorabilia, etc on show. I'm glad I made the visit. Its just been revamped as well which made it all the better. And best of all fun for all... More

There is a temporary exhibition about The Siege located in the hall next door to St. Augustine's church directly opposite the Apprentice Boys Memorial Hall, opened by them, while the new purpose built museum is being finished next door (September 2015). £2 entry per adult which includes an excellent guide about the walled city, a great souvenir.

Interesting to read about the history, I think it was a couple £/€ to get in but not much, not the biggest museum but if your into northern Ireland history it's a must.

This is well worth visiting to gain an understanding of the issues around Derry/Londonderry. There is always two sides to every story, make sure you get an understanding of both sides.
