The Story of Derry exhibition narrates the story from Monastic times, the Plantation of Londonderry, the Siege of Derry, through to the growth of Derry during the 18th and 19th centuries. Life during the 20th century is also included with the build up to the Civil Rights Movement and the impact of the Troubles. And our city’s regeneration.
An Armada shipwreck – La Trinidad Valencera exhibition tells the story of La Trinidad Valencera, one of the largest ships in the Armada Fleet. In 1588 it foundered in Kinnegoe Bay in Co. Donegal during a violent storm and was discovered nearly 400 years later by divers from the City of Derry Sub Aqua Club.
