  • This review primarily covers The Story of Derry exhibition...A very extensive set of artefacts on display with models and engaging narratives about the history of Derry down through the generations. Do allow a lot of time to get through all the material. There are fascinating stories around the sieges that the people of Derry endured. More could have been done though to explain in what way the walls, or the landscape, were effective at keeping attackers out. The section on the civil rights movement is balanced and extremely interesting. I found the staff to be exceptionally friendly and at £9 for a family it is great value for money. Although young kids may get bored with the amount of reading involved, the exhibition is diverse enough to interest all ages.
  • Fantastic staff. Very helpful and friendly. Great with the kids. Very interesting exhibitions. Even my older kids enjoyed it
  • This was really fun and has lots of history and amazing artifacts. I would recommend watching the video first before seeing any of the other exhibits as it will help outsiders understand more of what they are looking at when browsing the exhibits.
  • Eye opening tales of a City and it's inhabitants. Their struggle and the results. Good perspective.
  • Nice museum, good price very informative you should do this before the walk.
