This museum and the battlefield are excellent and moving. There is an interesting surround-type of video where you feel like you are in the battle. It is pretty amazing. This is a mass grave, so keep in mind that this is a fairly somber place, haunting really. But you do learn about what happened and why.

It doesn't matter what your nationality is, if you are anywhere near Inverness in Scotland you must visit the Culloden Battlefield and Visitor Center. This battle was the seminal event between the British and the Jacobite (Scottish) rebellion. It forever shaped the course of history for the United Kingdom of Great Britain. It has many parallels with the American Battle... More

The recreation of the disastrous (for the Jacobites) battle at this visitor's center is worth a visit, alone. But we have never seen such an excellent series of exhibits and presentations anywhere else. The staff of docent volunteers and paid help bring this momentous period in Scottish history alive and incredibly moving. It is both museum and gravesite and treated... More

A most solemn memorial to a valiant people. We walked the Battlefield almost in a whisper. Many a brave man gave their lives so that others may live.

We have visited this site twice........it is very haunting and you can tell from the atmosphere that it has so much to offer. The site is very close to Inverness. The displays in the centre and the historical items displayed make the tour (at your leisure or with a guide) so enjoyable. It is a huge site and takes time... More

I went because I became super interested in History after reading and watching Outlander. This museum was amazing. I was rushing because I had strict time constraints, but I wish I had taken the time to really be here. Somber but the audio guide is great. Loved it.

Absolutely haunting place. Learned so much going around the exhibition. The surround screen film made a huge impact on me and highlighted the senselessness of it all. I came away feeling furious with Prince Charlie for sending all the brave, hungry Highlanders to the slaughter... Had a very pleasant walk around the moor. Instead of feeling sad, I felt joy...
