Overview

Highland Aviation Museum is a family friendly, educational attraction just next to Inverness Airport. You can see a range of real life historic military aircraft and even go inside & pretend to be a fighter pilot. For the more avid enthusiasts, there are a wealth of technical facts and historical artifacts to browse. Our displays contain materials dating back as far as WW1. Come along to enjoy a great couple of hours.

It was a bit tricky to find, but worth it. Kids loved climbing into the cockpits and playing games. Staff were friendly and gave us lots of info on the planes. The cost for a family was £15. Well worth it!

We did a 60 mile round trip to take our grandson to visit this attraction only to find that it is now closed until April of next year (2017). This should, surely, be noted on your website.More

Nice museum with a few exhibits. Many cockpits can be sat in so a nice experience for kids. Not the easiest to find but worth the effort to find it. Friendly hosts with a good knowledge of the exhibits.
