“And I haven't even been in the door yet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Yesterday when walking along the Caledonian canal i was astounded to see this massive titanic model among the vegetation. Unfortunately it was some time before opening so I am going to have to come back but am certainly going to do so, with my grandsons. Amazing to see this collection of stuff right next to all the interesting items around Muirtown basin.

“Excellent exhibition with very welcoming host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

I had a few hours before my train back to London and was searching for something interesting. I admit that my knowledge of the Titanic was a little lacking and this was well worth my time. The host was very welcoming and gave me a great intro as well as good information about the town in general. There is fun for kids and the adults too and there is a sit down video which is very welcoming.

I walked to the venue and it is not a huge distance from the town centre. You're looking at a rough 10-15 minute walk from the town centre.

“A great day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

This is not to be missed. The kids will love it. It's interesting its relaxed and you spend as much time there as you want.
Our 10 year old was amazed. The wife thought it were very good and informative. Me I just enjoyed the day and will return to see what's been added next time we are in the area.

“Interesting Quirky Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Spent a couple of hours here on a wet Sunday afternoon, could go back again as we still didn't manage to read all the interesting bits and pieces, Inverness Council should ask this man to display his Titanic collection in a prime site in the centre of Inverness, it would very quickly become an even more popular tourist attraction. So much time and energy has been spent on this museum, it deserves more recognition.
A very enjoyable day topped off with a cup of tea and a chat with the owner.

“Managed a visit at last !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

We managed to go this visit up north !

To see it from the road, I was surprised that how much the actual museum site contained. There was so much to see and the grandchildren loved going around and playing the games even though none of them managed to get the hoops on the pole !
Stanley made everyone welcome and the tea was good.
Will definitely be going back there on a dry day and in the summer !

The best free venue we have been to and a donation was given to help more work to be carried out !
