Inverness Museum and Art Gallery
Detailing the lives and times of the Highland region, the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery focuses on natural history, archaeology and local history. Artefacts include Pictish stones, Highland wildlife, Jacobite memorabilia, Highland silver and costumes.
The ground-floor permanent exhibition traces human activity on the Highlands, including such ancient artefacts as the Ardross Wolf (a 6th-century Pictish carved stone), while the art gallery offers a rolling programme of temporary exhibitions.
There's a hands-on Learning Zone, specially developed for kids, including a video macroscope to project objects onto a large screen, a computer-controlled rooftop camera, the chance to monitor a weather satellite that receives reports from around the globe and a quern stone for grinding corn.
