Museum
“An eccentric collection of artefacts awaits at this museum in a former coastguard station on a grassy verge right by the waterfront. The most fascinating exhibits are from the sunken wrecks of Lough Foyle exploring the demise of the Spanish Armada and the departure from these waters of Irish emigrants. There's also an astronomy show in the full-dome digital theatre at the Planetarium.”
