Derry~Londonderry awardedThe newly opened Siege Museum in Derry~Londonderry has achieved a four-star rating under Tourism Northern Ireland’s visitor experience grading quality scheme.

 

Opened to the public for the first time in October, the purpose-built museum is laid out over three floors and is a permanent display of the history of the Siege of Derry and the Associated Clubs of the Apprentice Boys of Derry.

 

Presenting a Tourism NI four-star plaque to the museum, Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister Jonathan Bell said: “The Siege of Derry in 1689 is one of the landmark events in British and Irish history. The creation of this permanent display presents not only the historical context but also promotes a common understanding of the shared history of the Unionist and Nationalist communities of Londonderry and the North West.

 

“The presentation of the Tourism NI four star rating, gained on the first application, is an outstanding achievement and indicates the attraction is of an ‘excellent’ standard. The range of artefacts, video and interactive media, gives visitors an excellent insight into this important event in the history of Londonderry. In addition visitors are also afforded a tremendous opportunity to view one of the finest collections of meeting rooms used by the Loyal Orders. The Siege Museum represents a valuable and interesting addition to the tourism product already available here in the city and I have no doubt it will attract even more visitors to the North West.

 

“I applaud the Siege Museum for its commitment to excellence and for setting an example for quality, customer service and delivering a visitor experience. The professionalism and planning here at the museum send a strong message to our visitors about the quality available in our tourism product.”
