Oh dear, maybe because it was wet and raining but this was a pretty dire experience. Obviously the owner has a great passion for the titanic and there was lots of trivia and memorabilia but I'm afraid it felt rundown and all over the place, just a jumbled collection. The tired model of the titanic, I must admit made me... More

Really good fun and plenty to see. This is a little hidden gem in Inverness and well worth a look. Free of charge and you can take as many photos as you like, there's also complimentary tea and coffee!

We were only young adults, no children. We weren't sure if it was open, but went in anyways. Turns out it was open and free, accepting donations. The Titanic collection is truly impressive, from newspaper cutout, to blueprints, models and a big wooden replica outside. It's worth taking an hour from your time in Inverness to have a look, even... More

Such an interesting place created by a passionate team. I could go back again and again to look at the exhibits and information. Particularly fun for families. Not that accessible for disabled people.

There has clearly been a lot of effort put into creating this museum. It houses an 88ft Model of the Titanic, an old life boat and some other boats which are work in progress. There are photos and old newspaper cuttings about the Titanic and the Cunard luxury liners. Entry is by donation. There is a boat game for children... More

Not so easy to find... walk along the river Ness. Free, but donation welcome. It has toilets, not tested. It has lots of stuff about the Titanic, come things about sea rescue and a video game inside... the kids managed to get hooked on the video game, although it was not a great one - how?!? Outside there are DIY... More

Lovely hidden treasure of a place. Inside is a load of information, bits to play with and clothing to dress up in. Outside are many boats including the scaled titanic, all of which you can climb aboard and take a look. The children loved creating their own adventure stories and could have played for hours. Ok as an adult you... More
