“Excellent presentation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

This museum succeeds admirably in evoking the beautiful and sacred spirit of this wonderful area. The artifacts and displays are effective in giving meaning to the stones that can be visited in the landscape. The audiovisual program is not to be missed. The gift shop is a very fine one, too.

Excellent museum with really good interactive displays and exhibits to illustrate the history of the area. This was my second visit this year and I learned even more about the area.

“Great place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Very interesting museum, well presented and described, and a good book selection in the shop, very helpful and friendly staff, remembered us from 3 years ago. Food is excellent and a good view too from downstairs. Enjoyed the surrounding area, which the museum encourages you to visit, as well. Climb to the top of Dunadd is steep but worthwhile for the view.
