“Nice Museum next to the castle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Anything you ever wanted to know about the history of Inverness, you will find here. The museum is very nice and well designed. There are lots of artifacts to see that span several centuries. Inverness has a rich and fascinating history and the museum has displayed this history in a wonderful way.

“Small but it's free :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

This is a small wee museum, it has two floors and interesting historical facts on both floors. It has a cafe, small gift shop lifts and toilets. The castle is just a mere 200 yards from this museum. It's in the middle of town also. It's free and nice for a few hrs.

Limited but interesting exhibits, well laid out. Small gift shop but had a few quality items in with the general souvenirs.

“Free tourist attraction!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

For the size of this museum, it is a really good attraction. It's free which makes it perfect for students! I found the scottish history the most interesting. There's toilets, lifts, a gift shop and a coffee shop. Would recommend!

“Small but interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

This is a small museum, but they have some nice artifacts and information about Bonnie Price Charlie. If the weather is gray and dull, this is a nice place to spend a hour or two.
