Inverness Museum and Art Gallery
Certainly the best place to start, this building is situated in the heart of the city, just below the castle. It contains many different treasures, with displays of local history, archaeology, natural history, geology and more. There is Highland silver and gold, important artworks, rare Pictish carved stones, and even a stuffed puma named Felicity, captured locally and then kept in a wildlife park. Admission is free and the museum is open from Tuesday to Saturday every week, with different opening hours depending on the season.
