After we ate lunch at Culloden Moor Visitor Center (though we didn't get to eat pure Haggis because they ran out) we explored the exhibition that very well explained the war between England and the Jacobites. One side, the walls displayed the Jacobites’ situation, and the opposing walls displayed the English perspective. There is a 360 theater but the sound was far to loud so I didn’t watch it. We then walked onto Culloden Battlefield where many Scots were killed. The field is marked where the English and the Scots stood.

The Culloden Visitor Centre really explains the background of the Jacobite Rebellion from both sides. However, the 360 degree cinema recreation of the battle will really blow your mind and is not to be missed.

The exhibition is excellent. All the information is provided in an interesting and comprehensible way, the staff are helpful, the short film from the battlefield is very well made, and the atmosphere at battlefield itself is overwhelming.

I was really impressed with how this was organised. You are taken through the lead up to the battle from both sides and this was extremely informative and interesting. Towards the end there is also an immersive battle scene that is displayed on four screens, which was fantastic. I wouldn't recommend taking young children to be honest because that is quite graphic. After you have completed the visitors centre you go outside to where the battle was fought with an audio guide. This was great because it gave me a feel for how both sides were laid out and the events of the battle.
We had a bite to eat in the cafe as well and it was decent and offered a good selection.
If you are a member of the national trust then entry into the centre is free.
Overall I felt like I came away with a much better understanding of the jacobite rebellion and the battle of culloden than I had previously.

The visitors center is excellent. Even if you walk in with no knowledge of the Jacobite Rebellion and what happened at Culloden Moor, you will understand it after going through the exhibits before you walk out to the battlefield.
The battlefield self guided tour with a geo locator guide is really interesting. The battlefield is a moving experience.

By the way, all attractions in Scotland might as well be listed as "a good rainy day activity."
