“Very short video based exhibition”

Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: This is a 5 star visitor attraction and retail complex. Loch Ness is already the most famous lake in the world but our aim is to make it better understood. This is achieved through a fully audio visually guided 35 minute tour. The presentation is theatrical in style and integrates the real tools and archive footage from four decades of research. As part of our educational remit, under 6s go free. The facts are objectively explained and whilst keeping the mystery centre stage, we place it in the context of the loch's very unusual properties. Thus we are endorsed by Scottish Natural Heritage as "A portal to the unique natural phenomenon that is Loch Ness". We offer a huge range of retail onsite and boat cruises on Loch Ness in the summer months. There is also a large cafe and restaurant attached to the site.

We very rather disappointed at the exhibition. It consisted of four rooms with pre-recorded video films that started directly after each other. You had to follow the pace and after approx 15 minutes you were led out to the shop.

The complete story focused on how improbable the occurance of Nessie was and we had expected more of a story to strengthen the myth of "something out there".

The visit were not worth the price.

Many thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. I’m puzzled about your review as there are actually six rooms that take 5 minutes each with both film and lots of other things to see around the walls and ceilings, such a submarines, camera equipment, boats, sonar, special effects and much more. There is no one “leading you out” so I think perhaps you’ve just followed the people in front of you who sounded as if they skipped rooms, which is disappointing as you didn’t get the full experience. If you are planning to visit again please contact me debbie@lochness.com and I will ensure that you see everything.

Had a lot of potential but there wasn't enough to do, informative though but quite boring just listening to voice recordings all the way around

Many thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. I’m delighted that you found the exhibition informative. As well as the audio guided rooms there are lots of other things to see around the walls and ceilings, such a submarines, camera equipment, boats, sonar, special effects and much more. It’s such a pity you missed them and just focused on the screens. In room seven we also have scale models of all the things we’ve found in the Loch, eye witness statements you can see and hear and a huge newspaper archive, if you want to you can spend hours looking through everything!
