History

The Museum of Free Derry, also known as The National Civil Rights Archive, gives the most important information about the history of Derry and focuses on the civil rights era of the 1960s and 1970s when the early troubles took place.

The museum covers the history of Free Derry which consists of the Bogside, the Brandywell, the Creggan, Bishop Street and the Foyle Road. It also gives information about Stormont, the Corporation and the South Ward, 1920s -– 1960s and the revitalisation of local community spirit and self-help in the mid-1960s. In addition you can also learn about the Onto the Street phase as well as the battle of the Bogside, Bloody Sunday and the invasion of Free Derry.

The history is told from the people’s point of view that lived through this time and not the “official” version from the perspective of the government.
