Decent visit

Informative visit and helpful staff. The young ones weren't as interested but they are quite young and only like cartoons!

A Real Gem Of A Museum
Aug 2019
A fantastic museum funded by donations,
This is a great example of what a small museum should be.
With a detailed timeline of the rise and fall and rise again of a small port town
Packed with interesting facts and social history, it's just off the High Street, 20 minutes at most from the port. Well worth a visit,

Historic gem
Sep 2018 • Friends
Lots of good displays - see an iron lung close up as well as lots of the old surgical instruments, see how the industry of the firth has changed, find out why HMS Natal blew up, learn how important the Cromarty Firth area was in both wars and what you can still see in the town from these wars. All that in one morning or afternoon! The museum is open when there is a cruise ship in so pop in and visit their super craft fayre too.

Free museum about the town, port, and the navy
Oct 2018 • Solo
This small free museum has some history of the town, the port, and the navy. This area is no longer a navy base, but the oil deep water rigs are repaired here (so there are displays about that). While there is internet, it is not free.

Well presented town museum
Sep 2018 • Couples
Funded by donations, this is a great example of a small town museum. Packed with interesting facts and social history, it's just off the High Street, 10 minutes at most from the port. Well worth 30-45 minutes of your time, to see how the rise and fall and rise again of a small port town.

Surprisingly charming
Jul 2018 • Family
Museum at the end of the Highstreet near the Catholic Church. A history museum of area culture. The seniors that seem to run the museum (free will donation) seem to also run a craft sale with small knitted and carved things jewelry and book marks. They cater to the crowds from the cruise ships so they and several stores in town are only open when the ships are in town.
The whole town has WiFi, like and umbrella.

well worth a visit
Aug 2018 • Friends
An interesting museum - maintained, I believe, by local vols., who are doing a fine job. Contains a lot of interesting stuff, albeit some of it is a bit higgledy-piggledy and the museum, for better or worse, lacks the kind of hi-tech, hands-on gadgets that some (big) modern museums now possess. A good deal of the exhibits are related to the Navy and the two world wars (e..g, a whole section - very interesting - devoted to the loss of HMS Natal). Not a lot on the Invergordon mutiny, however. Would no doubt benefit from a cash injection - but, even as it stands, it's well worth a visit if you have any interest in history, especially naval history.

So much history

Its a tribute to the people of Invergordon for this museum. It is so worth the trip to see it. All they ask is a small donation to get it.
