I do think it's unfair that reviewers can post a poor rating because the museum closed. How is this a review of the venue? I wish they would contact the musuem to report their disappointment rather than post a terrible review. The museum website clearly gives opening times. I visited on a Saturday whilst on a short break and checked... More

I don`t understand why it is in the ugliest building in Inverness ? and built right by the castle destroying the view from the river.

A walk through the history of Scotland. Nice, well done historical displays over two floors and includes a small gift shop and cafe. A section for art displays. Free admission but you can give a donation.

This is located at the back of the tourist centre. Hard to find but once you do you could easily spend the morning or afternoon in there. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Museum is limited only by its size, but there's a wealth of information available for people if you want to take time to read it all. The exhibits on display are hugely diverse and there's quite a lot to take in. The Art Gallery on the other hand is quite limited. As a free attraction though there's no where to... More
