The Workhouse Museum

Derry Workhouse opened in 1840, closed as a Workhouse in 1948 but continued to be used as a hospital until 1991. The Museum now occupies two floors of the old Workhouse building. 
The Workhouse Museum exhibition includes the Atlantic Memorial exhibition, which covers the important part played by Derry in the Battle of the Atlantic during World War II. Other Artefacts and archives on display throughout the building relate to Workhouse life, 19th century poverty and the Irish Potato Famine.

This historic building is said to be haunted by a number of ghostly residents!
