Inside Culloden Visitor Centre our newly accredited museum takes you on a journey through the 1745 Jacobite Rising. The exhibition tells the story from both the Jacobite and Government sides, with artefacts from the time on display to admire.

Highlights of the collection include the Brodie Sword, a magnificent display piece that contains wonderful imagery of Medusa and dolphins on its hilt, and a rare blunderbuss that was taken from the battlefield at Culloden by a Government soldier.

The museum uses technology to help re-imagine the battle. Our 360-degree battle immersion theatre puts you into the heart of the action, and the bird’s-eye view battle table details the tactics and movements of the day.

Archaeological finds from the battlefield have allowed us to interpret more details of the battle. These include musket balls, buckles and a delicate Jacobite pewter cross that was likely dropped during the battle.
