The Bogside is a neighbourhood outside the city walls of Derry, County Londonderry, Northern Ireland. The large gable-wall murals by the Bogside Artists, Free Derry Corner and the Gasyard Féile (an annual music and arts festival held in a former gasyard) are popular tourist attractions. The Bogside is a majority Catholic/Irish republican area, and shares a border with the Protestant/Ulster loyalist enclave of the Fountain.
Great little museum. Hugely informative and moving.
A well put together presentation of the story behind "The Troubles" and the cost in human suffering caused by the inexcusable actions of the British army.
It's good and brought back many memories .A little cramped in space and more distance needed to view seedy video footage. Story boards were good Subject deserves a better setting.
It's a small museum but very informative and moving. A mixture of artefacts from the day as well as audio and visual presentations.
I visited this museum during a study abroad trip from Florida and it was one of the most moving experiences I’ve ever had. The museum is well set up and the exhibits are powerful and easy to understand. There is even audio/visual material.
Everyone should see this. History remembered. Shows what could be achieved in the maze.
A moving experience. Both communities had awful hurts inflicted on them during the troubles. But surely the people from the Bogside can claim that the pain they suffered was staggering. This highly detailed exhibition is well worth a visit regardless of where your sympathies lie. The artifacts are simple but, as so often, they tell a terrible story.
Absolutely amazing experience, thoroughly enjoyed it but so heartbreaking at the same time....... the exhibits on show certainly give the true accounts of what happened on the day. Highly recommended well worth a visit
