  • You can't visit the Center if you are in Inverness. This is a fixed course through a series of rooms that offer movies on the history of the Loch Ness monster. The time is dictated by the length of these and it is not possible to speed up the visit, about an hour. The movies are in English. Anything special. The store offers many souvenirs on the monster, a paradise for children.

  • Way better than I expected actually! Didn't do much research before visiting, but kind of had "tourist trash" preconceptions. Exhibition is an incredible high quality series of engaging videos and props that were really informative. Would definitely recommend.
  • It's been one of my dreams since I was a little girl to visit Loch Ness and I finally did it this summer. I didn't know what to expect really, so seeing the Exhibiton centre as soon as we arrived at the lake was a very nice surprise. It started our whole experience on a high note as we listened to the stories but I somehow wish there were more unexplained stories to encourage the imagination to flow free. Big plus for the hidden Nessie statue outside in the field!
  • Extremely boring. Out of date and Overpriced This "exhibition"(if you can call it that) is a series of freezing cold rooms with very poor resolution projectors playing uninteresting videos. This was by far the worst part of our trip of Scotland. Please do not waste your hard earned money here. You couldn't pay us to go back there
  • Very interesting and informative. Wheelchair accessible. The tour and commentary, which was probably state of the art a couple of decades ago, is now a bit dated. A little pricey for what it is.
  • £7 per person to enter - we went on a rainy day. It's basically various rooms showing various videos about Nessy. Could have been more interactive, the cost seems a bit steep to just watch videos. Is interesting though and there's a few 'artifacts' at the end.
