The tower museum

The Tower Museum is located within the historic walls of the city, opposite the Powder Gate. Since its opening in October of 1992, it has won four major awards. The Tower Museum houses two permanent exhibitions. The first one, "The Story of Derry," tells the story of the town from prehistoric times to the present. It uses panels and audiovisual projections to present information on the founding of the St. Columban Monastery in the sixth century to the Battle of the Bogside. The second, "Armada Shipwreck - La Trinidad Valenciera," tells the story of one of the largest ships of the Spanish Armada, La Trinidad Valenciera. This ship sank off the coast of Donegal in 1588 and was rediscovered by divers from Derry in 1971. On the top floor there is an exhibition about the Spanish army in addition to artifacts from a ship which sank in a bay nearby the Gulf of Kinnagoe. From the very top of the tower, there´s a beautiful view of downtown and the Foyle river. The complete tour of the museum takes a couple of hours. It´s open all year from Tuesday to Saturday from 10 to 5 pm (with the last entry at 16:30). Admission costs £ 4 for adults and £ 2 for children. Groups can get a discounted price at £ 2.50 (1.50 pounds for school groups) and family tickets cost £ 9 (for 2 adults and 3 children).
