We loved this museum! The displays go over the history of Scotland, both the formation if the land, and the people who moved onto it. Everything was well laid out and logical and they have lots of artifacts. They had quite a few pictish stones, which we found interesting, and even some dioramas of the local wildlife. We also enjoyed... More

Visited the museum to learn about the history of the place and found a quite comprehensive display, which we found useful. In addition to that they have an art section. Currently there is a display on Danish Diaspora; Scotland Seen Through Danish Eyes. Worth a look when you are there!

This is one of the Highlands' finest museums, despite being housed in a hideous, poorly accessed building. Its range of subjects and exhibits is very wide, including a special, if small, natural history section.

The museum and art gallery is well worth a visit. The museum gives a great insight into Inverness' rich and ancient past. whilst the art gallery often has some wonderful exhibits. Admission is free, which everyone can afford (especially if its raining), the staff are very helpful and friendly and the gift shop has some truly unique and endearing product.

This small museum takes visitors through the history of Scotland from the formation of the earth to Mrs Rollo's early 20th century kitchen. Along the way, there are numerous hands-on exhibits for kids, clear explanations of the various cultures from prehistory to Picts to Gaels to Stewarts. The staff were kind and helpful, locating some information for me about an... More
