This exhibition was interesting and provided an almost complete history of the story of Ness. It stopped short of more recent pieces if information. The staff were pleasant and this exhibition was reasonably priced.

Dated technology, but good information. Descriptions are provided of many sitings. Some are debunked, some are not. Quite a bit of time is devoted to explaining the research that has been done into the Loch Ness Monster. You are left to draw your own conclusions....More

The info was interesting but it was all a bit old. We thought it was expensive for the quality and time you spend inside. The full exhibition takes about half an hour. The documentary was interesting. But that is really all it was a documentary.

A fantastic exhibition split in to 5 sections with short narrated video and original equipment used on loch ness. Very interesting and well worth a visit if your at lochness! Highly recommended to a friend who is visiting Scotland next Month.

I visited the exhibition with my elderly mother, who has very limited mobility - the welcome and assistance I received in helping her to make something of the exhibition was exceptional. An enjoyable visit.

We weren't really sure what to expect as some exhibitions can be a bit dry and boring, but we were pleasantly surprised at the way that information was presented in this tour. Atmospheric and informative, we were drawn in to the world of "Nessie". We...More

The entry price is most certainly not worth it. The Center is a series of rooms with a short film in each - each rather boring, with narrative that nearly puts you to sleep. Even worse, it totally destroys the mystery of the Loch Ness...More

Hmmm very disappointed. About £17 for 2 adults and it was worth about £5 in my opinion. A series of short films and a few mock up displays. I wish I had spent my time looking for Nessie myself.More
