Truthful, sad, museum depicting the day 18 young people were innocently killed during a peaceful protest. It took 30 some odd years for the truth to finally come out and the Brits admitted fault, and apologies.

There are refrigerator badges of this landmark for sale in shops throughout the city. Scene of barracades in times past now a monument to the plain people of the area and their proud attempt to get justice for the events of that awful Sunday of the past.

This was a moving monument to the struggles that the people of the region experienced in the late 20th century. . The Free Derry monument is surrounded by murals painted on the sides of buildings that memorialize those that fell at Bloody Sunday and subsequent struggles. I was moved by the quiet of the place, as I recalled the questions... More

We signed up for a tour at the Museum of Free Derry. Our guide, Ozzie, had participated in the Troubles so it was an especially interesting tour. We wished we'd had a chance to do a similar tour in Belfast.

It would be so easy to dry past this and not know it is the Bloody Sunday Memorial. We should all remember the people who fought for their families and their religions.

It's chilling to be standing on the site of the places that we watched every night on TV during 'the troubles'. Still, great that the bombs, gas and barbed wire are gone!

After taking a tour and learning about exactly what happened on Bloody Sunday.......the Memorial is a very touching tribute to those lost on that day. If possible, try to take flowers to lay at the memorial.

You can see this from the Walls of Derry but its more meaningful as part of the Bogside walking tour, the Bloody Sunday story and the community revolt against oppression. Just across the road is the Bloody Sunday memorial so you experience the heart of Free Derry
