Inverness Museum and Art Gallery
With feet back on ground level, a visit to the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery gives a fascinating insight into the history of the Highlands and its people.
From the museum’s timeline, which shows how the unique highland landscape was formed, to learning about the importance of Gaelic language and culture, there is plenty to discover and enjoy. Visitors can feel the weight of the Achavrail bronze armlet, play the games of Merells or Hnefetafl, learn how to say some Gaelic words and phrases or wrap themselves up in an 18th century style highland kilt, before exploring the Highland Photographic Archive. Inverness Museum and Art Gallery is free of charge.
