“Something for everyone - don't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

This is an excellent facility - great for children and adults alike. There is local history, geography, nature, hands-on stuff for wee ones, - it's educational and fun at the same time.

Not to be missed by anyone visiting Tobermory.

“A Surprising Education!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

The only public toilets are located in the visitors centre in Tobermory - and it was a desperate need for the loo which led us to stumble across a hidden gem in Tobermory. A fantastic Marine centre, stunning visual information and interactive learning with real marine life from the harbour just a few metres away. Friendly and helpful staff, it is worth even the quickest of look arounds, and is invaluable if you have children.

“Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Really well put together exhibition and video centre. Something for all ages and interests. Funded by donations and this place deserves to be patronised.
