  • I love this place so much I named my little girl derry,and it also shows the strength and determination of the people of derry,no matter how badly we were treated we never and never will give oor city to foreign country
  • An eye-opening experience. Very informative even though it documents the suffering of the Irish. The only reason I didn't give the full 5 stars is because it would be heartless to say "I loved it"...
  • Really wanted to see this. Having lived through the events but from the distance of Carrickfergus and Belfast it was nice to see it from the perspective of the people directly involved. Also despite visiting Derry on many times in the 70's to 90's first time actually down in the Bogside. Feel that only by use learning from all sides can we hope to learn from the past and most importantly avoid repeating iy.
  • Thank you so much for this very impressive exhibition. After my visit my feelings were so...shaken! Thanks a lot for sending me the translated guide afterwards via email, appreciated!
  • Must see exhibition if you have some time in Derry.
