The museum is closed, the council did not renew the lease. The library is still there, you can park for free and go in and sit down and have a lovely read of books, newspapers etc. There is a toilet that is wheelchair accessible but unfortunately no cafe.Friendly, helpful staff.

I hope this place is not closed, I visited last year and thought it was a very good tourist attraction and the staff were very pleasant. There is nothing like this in Belfast and it was a unique attraction that L/Derry should have been proud of.

Went there and found it closed two weeks ago. Artifacts were taken to the City Museum, I believe. We were really Disappointed, as it sounded interesting.

Laura gave us a fabulous talk and tour and really engaged our children who were drawn into a life of gruel, hard labour and separation from their parents. We were enthralled for over an hour in her company and she even gave the children a biscuit at the end of the tour. A plea to Derry Council to sign post it, provide information leaflets and even better secure funding to restore the top floor so we can see more. Such a shame that so much of the workhouse and land has been already sold and built on. A definite must to visit!…

Above the waterside library is this hidden gem. Brilliant 20 minute tour given by Laura offered loads of insight, history and social info. Do not miss this - it is half an hour brilliantly spent and there was no charge! Can't believe I didn't know it was here. Should have been made much of in the year of city of culture. …
