Had a great day out here much more than we expected. Great use of technology to bring the past to life. Staff were all great and helpfully and really knew their stuff.

Loved the battle game and 3D movies. When we were there there was a room for trying on medieval armour and weapons. Lots of fun and great people to explain how everything was used. Staff in general very friendly.

Enjoyed a great afternoon at the center. The staff was really helpful in selecting the activities. My kids loved it, especially the show about the battle. The guide was passionate about Scottish history!

It was my birthday, which I decided to spend at the recently renovated centre. The centre is very modern; and features a new type of strategy game which is centred around the Battle of Bannockburn.

On behalf of the staff we hope you had a great birthday. We are delighted that you enjoyed your visit. However, we are slightly concerned you found the visit short. The average experience is around 90 minutes and we also have our café with views to the monuments, living history room, a huge mural and grounds containing our memorial monuments... More

Awful, would highly not recommend to anyone!! Very borning and not worth the money!! Staff are very rude and unprofessional. The shows/ game prices are beyond a joke, too much standing as there are no seats, would never go back.

We are very very disappointed to read your review. We are sorry you felt bored by our award winning exhibition but appreciate that an immersive 3D environment is not for everyone. Our prices are in keeping with other local attractions. Although the exhibition is fluid we do provide seating in the exhibition and add extra when necessary. we are very... More

If you like wearing 3D glasses, and younger than 10 years of age, you will love this visitor center. Our guide was there when the visitor center was planned and told the planners it wouldn't work. Unfortunately, she was spot on. If this isn't a scheduled stop on your tour, don't even thnk about it.

Visited the centre at beginning of July with the kids. We prebooked for taking part in the 'battle game'. On arrival we got to see, hold and try on some armour and weapons from the period. The kids loved this! The chain mail was so heavy! We then watched the 3D film and tried to take in all the inner... More

We stayed in a B&B just down the road and saved this for last. So glad we did! Absolutely fantastic. Book ahead, do the 3D battle and you won't be disappointed. Both my kids loved it. 3D effects were really realistic, and the battle was brilliant. The battle master was so informative and got everyone chatting and laughing. There's a... More

Booked a slot for the "game" well in advance. Good job as there isn't an information panel or anything to tell you about the site! We wandered outside looking for information on the surrounding area but found nothing. The "experience" is good but it's a 3D sensory overload! Loud 3D you need to move your head around 4 screens to... More
