Museum of Free Derry


Established by the Bloody Sunday Trust, the Museum of Free Derry opened in 2007 in order to tell the story of what happened in the city during the period 1968 – 1972, popularly known as ‘Free Derry’, and including the civil rights era. Phase II of the Museum of Free Derry opened in February 2017 - a stunning, state-of-the-art new facility on its original site in the Bogside.

The Museum of Free Derry holds an archive of over 25,000 individual items relating to this period in the city’s history - most items donated by local residents, 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.

A member of the International Coalition of the Sites of Conscience, the museum puts the Free Derry period into a wider Irish and international context so that visitors see the events depicted not just in relation to the communal conflict in the North or the conflict between Britain and Ireland.
