I visited the Museum with my boyfriend a few weeks ago as he as just moved into the area around the workhouse. We met the tour guide at the top of the stairs and he took us on an impromptu yet very detailed tour! He really made our day. We were the only people in the museum at the time and yet the whole time he was was talking, all we could hear were footsteps and banging doors! I got spooked on a few occasions but it was exciting. It was amazing to learn the history of the area.
I came home and told my mother everything we'd seen and heard and SHE wanted to go so this morning she and I went up. This time there was a female guide and she was fantastic as well. We were more interested in any ghostly sightings or noises and she told us so many stories, we both got the chills. I highly recommend visiting the Workhouse, you'll be welcomed by the warmest people. Can't wait to hear how this paranormal team get on in it! The female guide told us about how the Derry Journal did a piece on the workhouse museum a few years ago and how they were supposed to stay overnight in the building to see if it really was as haunted as they say - and they only lasted to 1am!
