  • Excellent presentation , easy to follow even for people who have little or no knowledge of the history and events of the area. The museum is manned by knowable and friend staff. Well worth a visit. 
  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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"...
  • 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!
  • A moving memorable experience reminded me of how it really was back them Thanks to those who preserved our history
