“Get up to date with Scotland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

My Lady being into the art world and me into history this was a great place for us to visit a combination of both. Avery good experience for both of us well worth a visit, we did not have too long there as we were pushed for time only on two visit to family.

“Well worth a visit for the beautiful Pictish art stones.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2012

This is a quite small but well thought out and planned museum with some really good exhibits and definitely worth a visit. A surprisingly good museum for such a small town really. I particularly liked the Pictish exhibits and especially the Pictish stones, quite simply beautiful, enchanting, and enough reason alone to visit this museum, though there is also much more of interest to see. A couple of hours well spent. Recommended.

“Great museum, a bit hidden away”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2012

It may be at the end of a flight of steps in Inverness' greatest architectural sin, but the museum offers a great show of finds and history of the Highlands, with fun stuff for children (some of which looked remarkably adult). Everything from Stone Age to the Railway in Perth, great way of wiling away two hours. the Coffee is great too!

“Not a great museum, but has some nice Scottish history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2012

We are museum buffs and this was a nice museum - not great, but there was some interesting pieces related to Scottish history. We had the place to ourselves.
