  • Regardless of what science has told them I know Nessie lives in the Loch. An hour boat tour of the Loch Ness assured me that the Loch is magical and Nessie lives beneath the deep dark waters of the Lo...  read more »
  • Upon our arrival we were welcomed. Explanatory papers are available at the entrance. Even if the voice explanations are in English, we can make the links through the videos. I really loved this attraction, and the Shop souvenir is waiting for you at the end of the visit. I recommend 1000 times!

  • Content wise the exhibition is fairly good. A speedy thirty minute automated presentation with light and sound effects told over the course of 6 rooms. It did feel rushed as you had to move on quickly...  read more »
  • If you have your heart set on seeing Nessie you must make sure to stop in at the Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition, Drumnadrochit, Inverness, Inverness-shire IV63 6TU, UK to see everything that the world knows about Nessie and her past spotting's that have occurred. You'll definitely enjoy yourself here at the visitors center and be able to pick up your very own Nessie to take home with you wherever that is in the world!
  • It serves it function as the Centre of Loch Ness history and exhibition place. More than 15 minutes long series of explanations. In the end, as usual, you will find an overpriced souvenirs shop. Would have given 5 stars if they maintained the updated technology for the shows.
  • A good exhibit, with a well layed out timeline of events surrounding the myth, however fairly old and low-budget seeming. Seemed a bit too expensive for the low quality presentation. Info was good, aesthetic less so. Staff very friendly.
  • Disappointing. Staff were very nice but the exhibition itself didn't hold any excitement at all and you could tell everyone was bored and really didn't enjoy it. Some good information of the history of the search for Nessie but it does nothing to encourage the myth, in fact all it does is tell you how impossible it would be for Nessie to be real, not something that would encourage the imagination in children or adults alike.
  • Very little value for the money. 20 mins of old films and a small room with a few simple exhibits. Save your money and just go the gift shop it has better stuff to look at to be honest.
