All staff were wonderful and very helpful. The live actors in the museum were also well informed and interacted well. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Inveraray or places close by.

Lots to see and mull over. The information is well presented in audio with plenty of visual displays. The jail is a fascinating place as are some of the prisoner's stories.
