  • If you have any interest in Nessie, the centre provides information about the origin of Nessie's history and continuing mystery. The centre presets the information as a series of multimedia rooms...

  • How can this place be called the Loch Ness centre & exhibition when you can’t even see the Loch - in fact it’s landlocked & nowhere near the Loch. Wish we’d read the reviews before coming here. This....  more

  • Really cool. Better than expected. I expected a low-budget couple of rooms with info about sightings and some research to read, but the museum presents a lot of info through a series of videos. You walk through very well designed scenes that set the stage and show videos explaining sightings and all the investigations done to try to find any evidence of Nessie and lets you make up your own mind what to believe. Well worth a stop. A few shops are on site including a names research center where you can look up your family name origins for free and then purchase if you would like to take the info with you.
  • This is a really interesting exhibition centre, containing all the information you need to know about Loch Ness and the history and myths behind the lake. I found the experience very interesting, informative and easy to follow along. Each little section of the exhibition centre has a little short movie to tell the history and mythology behind the lake with interesting sound and light effects. At the end of the tour there is a quaint souvenirs shop where lots of Loch Ness and Scotland related items can be purchased. I would recommend visiting this exhibition centre and I would recommend doing the walk through show. I would not recommend doing the walk through if you are have any photosensitivity or sound sensitivity as there are flashes and loud noises during the experience.
