Very nice museum, tells Scottish history from the prehistoric to modern times. There are some activities for children, like drawing, trying kilt or chain armour. The museum is situated in the centre right near the Inverness castle and Information Point. It is free and there is wifi access.

A good way to get some background information on Inverness and surrounds. The man at the front desk was very helpful in pointing us in the right direction for what we wanted to see.

I was rather disappointed with the museum. The place is easy to find, clean and had stuff in it but I felt they could of done a better job of giving information about the items on display. For example, in the Jacobite section there are pictures of the different people but not enough information to describe the relationship to each... More

Well worth checking out behind the tourist office. You can leave your bags at the front desk. I learnt quite a bit about Highland Rural Life which was great before travelling on. Coffee shop is good too with chocolate brownies that taste a lot better than they look. Free Entry

Easy place to spend over an hour & it's free! (Donations welcomed & I would add, very much deserved!).
