Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition

A 5 Star VisitScotland Visitor Attraction, the exhibition has been open for over 30 years and consists of 6 themed rooms all telling their own story of Loch Ness from the beginning of time! A fascinating trip for kids of all ages, who will adore the sense of history and mystery combined!

There are many actual research exhibits from past expeditions such as 'Operation Deepscan' and The Loch Ness Project's submarine 'Machan' still believed to be the smallest in the world.

The attraction bases itself on 'edutainment' and all children are issued with a free glowstick at the entrance. Pre and post work packs are available to download on the website through the DOWTK link to round off a very educational experience! Much of the content is aimed at the national curriculum for excellence.

The are a host of shops and hourly boat cruises departing in the summer months. The Drumnadrochit Hotel boats a huge cafe and bar and provides all the necessary refreshments one might like.

It may be worth checking out Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.


We do strongly suggest you contact Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
