The museum is an excellent display of the history of the highland regiments and should be the home of any medals awarded to your ancestors if they were in these regiments.

Well worth the admission to Fort George on its own account. Wonderful museum showing the history of the Highlanders from beginning to now. Museum is inside Fort George - which is still being used by the regiment today.
