History

The exhibitions are about the Story of Derry and the Armada Shipwreck – La Trinidad Valencera. The Tower Museum also hosts a wide range of interesting, temporary exhibitions.

The Story of Derry exhibition gives information about the history of Derry up to the 21st century and entertains its visitors with display cases, audiovisuals and artifacts. The museum covers everything from monastic times over the Civil Rights Movement to a glimpse of where the city is today.

An Armada shipwreck – La Trinidad Valencera tells the story about La Trinidad Valencera which was one of the largest ships in the Armada Fleet. The ship foundered in Kinnagoe Bay, Co. Donegal in 1588 during a violent storm and was found nearly 400 years later by divers. The exhibition offers a wealth of information via audio-visual and interactive displays and shows exciting artifacts such as textiles, pottery, wooden bowls, shoes and coins recovered from the ship.
