The Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition was established in 1980 to give insight and explore the biodiversity of Loch Ness in Scotland. The lake has become famous for the legend of the Loch Ness Monster, also known as Nessie, which has lived here for centuries, according to Scots. The Loch Ness Centre teaches visitors about Scottish folklore, Scotland's geological past, and the environment surrounding the lake. The museum explores the history of the region from its earliest history through present day.
The Loch Ness Centre presents facts about Loch Ness and Nessie in an interesting and entertaining way. There are seven themed rooms and uses a mixture of animations, lasers and special effects. Visitors are given the opportunity to learn about the research that has been done and make their own decision about the legend of the Loch Ness Monster.
The Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition is located at the Drumnadrochit Hotel about 15 miles south of Inverness.
