Well thought out museum and visitor center. Gives great perspective of the battle and insight into the events leading up to the fight. To actually walk the battle field and see the clan stones gives a solemn perspective of this historic battle. Lovely gift shop and coffee shop there as well.

I have only ever once before visited here, probably about twenty years ago. I recall the moor being very atmospheric, quite eerie and very solemn. I revisited today with my partner whilst driving back from the west coast. Firstly, on parking the car we were met by payment machines requesting £2 to park your car. Needless to say I am... More

First of all visit the museum to learn about the events leading up to and the history of the battle. I learned so much. It's well laid out with the story of the Jacobite side on one side of the gallery and the government story on the other side as you walk through. Then there is a room with a... More

Fantastic interactive Visitor centre, loads of information great experience. Frightening in the battle video room with all the differing factions fighting and me stood alone in the middle. A little confusing on the route through, easy to miss bits or jump a few weeks in the story. Shame it was such appalling weather, only walked a few hundred meters into... More

Both my wife and I are Americans with no English or Scottish ancestry (that we know of). Yet visiting Culloden Moor was still a moving experience. The visitor center is excellent. Most of the displays are set up with the government point-of-view on one side and the Jacobite on the other. There is one room with screens all around. Initially... More

A brilliant visitors centre that caters for all ages. The guides who take you on the battlefield should have microphones or some sort of loud speaker

This is absolutely well worth visiting - given it's place in history almost a must do activity. The visitor centre is excellent. The displays, information and museum is first class and very well laid out, with the story told from both sides. The collection of aretefacts is amazing and with provenance too. I learnt a lot from the displays and... More

Have always wanted to visit the Culloden Battlefield and now can cross it off my list. We got lost trying to find the actual site as our GPS took us down all these back roads and to dead ends but I preserved and used my eyes and eventually arrived. What a bleak sight driving up to it. The day suited... More

An outstanding place to visit - the museum is beautifully done and tells the whole story about the battle that took place here. Outside the area is bound to make you quiet and bring you back in time because there's nothing else to disturb you - just the battlefield itself, a fwe flags marking the two armies and a number...
