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

Visited the Museum whilst we walked through Bogside to look at the wall murals. Informative and personal view of the terrible times during the “Troubles” and the need to never forget but move ahead. Certainly worth the money.

Brilliant & informative. This place lets you get the history of Derry in a non rushed educational & informative way. It was well set up, the staff were very friendly.

You cannot visit Derry without a trip to the “Museum of Free Derry”.
The museum tells the complete story of the 1960s civil rights movement in Ireland and the events and aftermath of Bloody Sunday in 1972.
