Easily done in a couple of hours, at most. Gives a great geological and historical overview of the Highlands - nice starting point for any trip in the area. Definitely recommend.

Spent some time here just to have a break. A very informative museum which can keep you busy for an hour or so. The exhibits are very good with a good cross section of all the main topics. Should children become bored than there are plenty of interactive activities available to keep them occupied. Admission is free. Worth the visit... More

Boasting a great central location in the heart of Inverness, the museum and art gallery are a hit and miss affair, depending on what touring exhibition is showing. It has its moments but appears stuck in a timewarp - and not in a good way. Too many stuffed animals and dry exhibits for my liking, not so much in the... More

We always head for the city museum whether in Copenhagen or Inverness. This fitted perfectly into the mould being small, free and highly informative with a good cafe. It's slightly hidden too which keeps it quiet. The first floor has some excellent geology and more ancient history. Upstairs the gallery had the works of one artist with a video display... More

The displays are quite good and there are activity "drawers" for children. The subjects are logically and artfully arranged. Unfortunately, the museum is closed on both Sundays and Mondays.

All of my family enjoyed the museum and art gallery. Plenty of interactive things for kids to do, they loved the Gaelic translating wall! The animals are lovely to look at and the art room was fun. Would visit again.

This museum is certainly worthy of an hour of your time while visiting Inverness. There is no admission and the staff is very friendly and willing to answer any questions about the art exhibits or artifacts. I really enjoyed the historical photos and poetry on display. It's conveniently located in the City Centre.
