We only visited the battlefield and not the visitor centre so can't speak for that. Battlefield is well signposted and has plaques around the site to explain the battle positions etc. Spent a good 1.5 hours walking round, it's a must see if you love history. Having read up on the Jacobite history beforehand we felt we didn't need to... More

We loved Culloden Moor. It is a sacred place. Seeing the flags where each side stood and faced their enemies sent shivers down my spine. The day we were there it was cold and windy - sort of like the weather on that dreadful day. The museum is amazing. So worth the trip.

Didn't know much about the Battle of Culloden before I went, but it was definitely worth it to learn about such an important piece of Scottish history. The museum is well done, giving both sides of the Jacobite revolution, and the battlefield itself is easy to explore. Definitely take the audio tour.

The Culloden Museum provides very detailed information on the lead up to the battle occurring. The display includes a 360 degree visual display of the battle as well as a number of interactive displays as well as detailed written accounts of the events leading up to the battle. Reasonable entry price and staff are very knowledgable and generous with their... More

Took opportunity of revisiting , and was impressed by the newly built museum commemorating the battle which took place over 270 years ago. . We ironically confided with nearly the Exact date of the battle, which made the visit more poignant- many of the graves on the battlefield were festooned with wreaths and flowers etc. We did not have enough...

interesting site, we got there when the visitor center closed, I would have liked to know more about the battle itself, but still good history lesson to tour the gravestone marked fields

We visited this famous battlefield on 16th April, exactly 271 years since the 60-minute battle took place in 1746. It still remains a solemn and eerie place. The exhibition centre is really, really good showing both sides of the story in the lead up to, the battle and the aftermath of this, the last battle fought on British soil. The... More

Modern visitor centre with plenty of audio visual effects gives a terrific overview of the battle and the context of the conflict from a social perspective. You receive a great understanding of this desperate time and the suffering endured. The windswept battlefield has of course nothing as such from the time but the visitor centre helps guide you through the... More
