Ok, the battlefield itself is ok and interesting. We are local and walk here frequently, and it is well worth a visit whether or not you do the full thing. The visitor centre itself is very ugly outside and a blot on the historic landscape,...More

We went as a family and had a great day. The exhibitions and information were very interesting from the oldest, 69, to the youngest, 11. There were hand sets so that more information could be heard. We loved the gift shop, although we thought £60...More

The museum was extremely well arranged, balanced and interesting. The recorded footage was confronting and moving. It is hard to believe the beautiful moor was once the scene of so much devastation.

Long awaited trip to Culloden Battlefield and was not disappointed. Well worth the £2 fee for a guided tour. The guide was excellent in conveying all aspects of the history leading up to the final battle. The exhibition is well laid out and informative.
