The city centre site is located within the Historic City Conservation Area between at the corner of Magazine Street and Society Street within the Walled City of Derry with its main frontage is along Society Street. The new purpose built museum and visitor centre extensions filled the site footprint and were constructed on the very restricted space between the existing Memorial Hall and the adjacent Britannia Hall which remained operational throughout.
