Nasty approach past the dustbins

Good museum, the town and area history well covered, good cafe. Lift for the disabled. But the approach is appalling, up a short but steep hill dodging the Taxies in the rank.

Definitely visit this place if you are in Inverness. Plenty of things to see and to do, including interactive stuff. Will be very interesting for kids although I really enjoyed my visit as an adult!

Interesting museum & art gallery, covering many aspects of Inverness and Scottish history. We were lucky when we went there as there was a Lego exhibition as well.

The museum and gallery are free admission and well worth a visit. The Museum is well laid out, with many artefacts of interest, including Pictish stones and a large room devoted to Jacobites.

This is a small museum, but interesting in all kinds of ways. The shop offers a variety of Pictish-style jewellery, which would make a nice present for someone on your return.
