  • Great artifacts and cool memorabilia. A little too much in terms of it takes a while to go through but worth it.
  • This, and the whole Fort George site itself, is a wonderful place for a family day out... Steeped in history, lovely and scenic, and yet a working Barracks too. Well worth visiting.
  • Lovely afternoon out great museum with lots of information and nice displays. Well worth a visit if you in inverness
  • Interesting museum with a lot of military stuff.
