Established by the Bloody Sunday Trust, the Museum of Free Derry tells the story of the civil rights movement and the creation of Free Derry in the 1960s and 1970s through an impressive multi-media exhibition.


It has become an important part of Ireland’s radical and civil rights heritage and tells the story of how a largely working class community rose up against the years of oppression it had endured.


The museum's archive of over 25,000 individual items relating to this period in the city’s history includes items with immense historical significance, which have been largely  donated by local residents. Historical events covered include the Battle of the Bogside, Internment, Bloody Sunday and Operation Motorman.
