Opening hours



This modern, medieval-style building houses a detailed exhibition charting the history of the city of Derry. A brick gallery paved with large pebbles leads into the space where visitors learn about the Derry of prehistory to the 1960s, courtesy of audio-visual displays, artefacts and wax figures. For a closer look at the last 50 years, step into the cinema, where a documentary is shown that objectively explains the causes and consequences of the Troubles.
