The Centre is very well done. It explains the battle in terms of history with dynasties of the Hanover’s and the Stuart’s. As you go down the hallway each side of the hall tells the story of each side. There are eyewitness accounts, artifacts, letters...More

A real piece of Scottish history - the visitor centre is excellent and takes you through the Rising when 'Bonnie Prince Charlie' returned to Scotland. The battle film was very impressive but onto the moor itself was very enlightening and thought provoking. This battle only...More

A historically significant site. The visitor's center and museum sets the scene for the events leading up to the battle. The battlefield is clearing marked with the positions of both armies leading up to the final conflict. This is a must experience for history buffs.

The cold wind and dreary day heighten the experience at this museum. We visited on Nov 12, after attending a war memorial service earlier in the day. The whole day was very focused on war history and being in that frame of mind helps when...More

Culloden battlefield, the location of arguably the most significant battle in Scottish history, is a fantastic day out. The visitor centre is quite large with a decent sized cafe and gift shop. The actual 'museum' side of things is decent without being outstanding. There is...More

No. The ticket you buy at the visitor center is for admission to that facility and the battlefield. We had a car so we drove. Ask your hotel. Have you tried Uber?
