    Tower Museum

    UPDATE February 2004: The Tower museum is closed for renovations until further notice.

    If you want to learn about the history of Derry, then the Tower Museum is the best place to start. It tells you the whole history starting with the first settlers who arrived here and lived on Oysters, the origins of the name Derry (Doire - Oakgrove), the building and development of the city walls and city in general, the linen/shirt industry that thrived here for centuries. It also gives you an interesting insight into the political/cultural conflicts.

    Address: Union Hall Place

    Directions: When standing in front of the Guildhall facing the city walls head for the gate on the right and you'll see it straight away.
