Worth the Visit! The battlefield is scenic, moving and provides a backdrop for an interesting history lesson. The free tour guide was very informative. I could have spent a lot more time here! There was a four walled movie in the museum that reenacted the...More

Culloden battlefield has a very good and thoughtful museum. The grounds are free but the exhibits are not. The events leading up to Culloden were given both from English and Scottish viewpoints. There is also a very moving video re-enactment. We caught bits of a...More

Having had some preparation for the visit, we spent some time going through the museum part and watching the video but spent more time outside walking the battlefield. We referred to the maps, read the memorial stones and markers and really felt history around us....More
