The Museum of Free Derry
Author's Review

The award-winning Museum of Free Derry has been open since 2007, with the purpose of the telling the story of the ground breaking civil rights fight throughout the period of 1968 – 1972. The museum is located in Glenfada Park, the previously derelict building in the centre of where these events occurred, specifically the Bloody Sunday killing zone, as well as “Free Derry’, Battle of the Bogside, and Operation Motorman. These stories are told right from the mouths of the oppressed, the working class people whose lives were forever changed by these events. The museum is a fundamental part of Ireland’s civil rights heritage as it shares the story of overcoming injustice, the fight for freedom, for human rights, and equality for all. Quite an inspiration on a national and international level, and well worth a visit for those interested in exploring the historic archive of Free Derry and Bloody Sunday.
