Follow the Museum’s timeline to discover how the unique highland landscape was formed. Find out about the Picts and their beautiful carved stones, the world wide links of medieval Inverness and the importance of Gaelic language and culture. In the upstairs galleries the story continues with the Stuarts and Bonnie Prince Charlie, music, the stunning Inverness silver collection and ends with the modern city of Inverness.
There are lots of things to do - feel the weight of the Achavrail bronze armlet, play Merells or Hnefetafl, learn how to say some Gaelic words and phrases or wrap yourself up in an 18th century style highland kilt. The Highland Photographic Archive held within the museum is responsible for preserving and cataloguing negatives and photographs from all over the Highlands and to then make them accessible to all. The archive is now home to well over 100,000 negatives and prints which relate to most areas of the highlands but the majority are from Inverness and the surrounding area.
We have a vibrant Art Gallery with a programme of temporary touring exhibitions of local, national and international art and craft. There is also a Community Gallery for local groups to show their exhibitions. The museum has shop and a café for you to relax in.
