Adrian Kerr, Manager of The Museum of Free Derry

Located in the heart of the Bogside & Brandywell area, The Museum of Free Derry is a permanent multi-media exhibit of one of Derry’s most important historical periods – the civil rights movement of the 1960’s and 70’s, especially Sunday, January 30, 1972 when a peaceful civil rights march turned into a massacre by British soldiers who opened fire on the march, killing 14 unarmed men and wounding another 14 unarmed men and women. The museum houses over 20,000 artifacts, most of which have been donated by local residents.

The museum is open to the public year round. It heavily relies on private contributions for operating funds and upkeep.
