The history presented was interesting. The exhibit could use some technical updating to keep visitors, particularly children & teens, more engaged.

You’re basically paying ~8£ to watch 3-4 videos screened on projectors as you walk from dark room to dark room. Really nothing special. No artifacts to see or anything. Wouldn’t call it an exhibit to be honest. Save your money, take a picture with the...More

No welcome, not even a hello at the pay in desk which is what you walk into at the “first exhibit”....basically you walk room to room in the dark to watch a projected film with the same narrator all the way through. Boring & un-interactive...More

The displays and information were very interesting and the way it has been done is great. Good visitor attraction. The staff member at the ticket desk wasn't overly welcoming though which lets it down a bit.

Very informative, nice setting on the Ness, the gift shop for all those that like to collect a memory of your 25 mins no guide. Value for money.

Very well presented! We started our day with this exhibition which gave us a good back story to the Loch and the Loch Monster. Staff were friendly, the information was informative and we are glad we included this in our trip!

All you ever wanted to know about the Loch Ness Monster and the entire area. A must to visit and be sure to take a boat ride on the lake as well.

This exhibition seemed to be more interested in debunking the Nessie story rather than promoting it, but then it does appear that Adrian Shine is behind it so no real surprise there. The videos were OK but a lot of info was left out, as...More

Excellent audio-visual exhibition discussing the history and legends of Loch Ness and the monster. Leaves you to make your mind up after presenting the facts. Very well done.
