The Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition Experience

For centuries burly Scotsmen have been touting stories of a legendary monster that inhabited the Loch Ness. ‘Nessie’, as it has been affectionately called, has not only become synonymous with the loch but has in many instances become more famous than this beautiful body of water. However, in this day and age of science and technology, very few people would gladly admit that they are believers in one of the world’s most famous fabled monsters. Still, the loch itself and its surrounds are definitely worth a deeper look and this is exactly what you can do on a visit to the Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition Experience (previously the Official Loch Ness Exhibition Center), rated as a 5 Star Visitor Attraction.

Established in the year 1980, the centre was later upgraded in 2000 to an award winning multi-media interpretation centre. It boasts a variety of activities, presentations and displays that give interesting insight into the immense biodiversity that can be found in one of the most famous lakes in the world. There are seven rooms – each of which carries a specific theme – and each room offers visitors a sort of ‘walk through’ experience that they won’t easily forget. The exhibition is designed to not only present a number of facts and figures about the loch, but to present them in an interesting and entertaining way. This goal is certainly accomplished and any trip to the museum will soon have you spouting facts about the legendary Loch Ness.

You don’t need to speak Gaelic or English to enjoy the tour either. The tour through the various exhibition rooms is narrated in eleven different languages and takes roughly half an hour to complete. Graphic presentations combined with animations and laser shows give a 3-dimensional effect to the tour and make it a top-notch attraction. After the presentation you can enjoy shopping at a number of great shops or you can enjoy a self-service meal at the centre’s restaurant. The centre is readily accessible for people with disabilities, and the facilities are child friendly too. So make use of this great tourist attraction that is open all year around and visit the Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition Experience at Drumnadrochit in Inverness-shire.

I thought in Scotland we called lakes lochs! I was horrified to see reference to the lake several times in this description of the exhibition centre.
Dear Patricia Rose, Thank you for visiting Scotland.com and expressing your view regarding the use of the word lake in this article. We appreciate your concern and have adjusted the text to rather make use of the correct term loch. Best wishes.
