Loch Ness Exhibition Centre


2023 Update - The Loch Ness Exhibition is currently closed for the refurbishment of the exhibition areas. It should be re-opening around Easter 2023.

The Loch Ness Exhibition Centre (formerly Loch Ness 2000) was established in 1980 and has consistently ranked as one of the most popular tourist attractions in Scotland.

Visitors are guided through 6 different chambers, which tell you about the story of Loch Ness from the ice age through to the present. The loch's famous mystery remains centre stage, but the exhibition also explains the many other aspects of Loch Ness.

This excellent interpretation centre has been awarded 5 stars by Visit Scotland and was designed by leading authority Adrian Shine of the Loch Ness Project. Adrian also provided the script and the voice for the narration at the Exhibition Centre.

The exhibition takes an unbiased viewpoint, asking all the time the same question: is it actually possible?

A great way to discover Loch Ness and what lies beneath those dark waters!

PLEASE NOTE: Don't get confused between this Loch Ness Exhibition, which is beside the Drumnadrochit Hotel on the A82, and the so called "Original" Loch Ness Monster Visitor Centre which is near the A82 / A831 road junction in Drumnadrochit. The latter is not much more than a gift shop!
