Located in Inverness and housed in a modern building the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery allows you to explore and learn all about stories, people, environment and traditions of the Highlands. This museum really is a treasure trove of artefacts and artwork.
The museum originally opened in 1826 and since then has undergone a number of changes and transformations, one of the biggest was in 2007 when the whole building was refurbished and lots more displays and facilities added.
Set over two floors, in the museum you will find a range of history, starting on the ground floor where you can see a range of natural history and geology and heritage of the highlands. On the second floor you will be able to see more modern artefacts and recent history including authentic highland weapons and bagpipes along with Inverness Silver and Jacobite memorabilia.
Alongside the museum is the art gallery which houses and exciting array of local fine art and exhibitions always with a variety of changing artists so you will always see something different.
