We spent around an hour here. It's great for learning about Scottish history - especially the Jacobite era (it's good to combine a visit here with (and before) a Jacobite tour of Loch Ness, for visitors to Inverness).More broadly, the gradual transition of geography and ecology of Scotland over the last 10,000+ years is detailed. We particularly enjoyed the machine which pressed a 1 penny piece into an engraved, squashed penny with the museum name and logo into (50p charge for this). Great for both adults and kids, and also a free 1-2 hours spent learning about interesting Scot's history. Highly recommended.

It is tucked behind the information office. There are a lot of interesting things in this museum. There are many things kids will be interested as well.

I was dubious at first because it began with information about the geology of the highlands, which I have no interest in, but I soon changed my tune when it moved on to the inhabitants of the highlands from the earliest times, and the history of its people, animals and environment.

The displays are attractively laid out and the information given is large, clear and easy to read - with not too much detail which may overwhelm. I enjoyed the art exhibition as well

An hour very well spent - I would have stayed longer but I arrived around 4 pm and it closed at 5 pm.
