I visited today with my 2 children aged 4 and 7. The website said the interactive game wasn't suitable for children under 7 but I was very disappointed to find that there was nothing at all to see unless you booked the tour which is 1 1/2 hours! We saw the fields and monument but I really feel there should... More

This is a stunning attraction. It covers all aspects of the battle and life at that time. And the live refight experience is outstanding. Well worth a visit.

This is a really good way to teach kids the history of your nation. As an Englishman I wouldn't have minded losing to The Bruce.

This is a must see, the exhibits bring the battle and the people who fought in it to life for me, the interactive war game allows you to take command of troops and re fight the battle and it shows how a change in tactics on the day could have led to a different outcome. Also really brings home that... More

Visited with our two boys of eleven and four and had quite high hopes for this as an afternoon out. The staff on the front desk were very friendly and knowledgeable, we didnt know about the timed nature of the tours but there was space for us in the next one.

You learn more from places such as this, when it is fun to be part of it in the 3D area. History comes alive and the stories from the past are good to listen to. Very enjoyable, I am sure that the school children would love to visit this centre.

Wow. If history lessons in school were presented like this, I'd even go back to middle school. Dress up in the costume area before entering the experience to get in the mood for a great informative and adventurous look at the Battle of Bannockburn and the politics of the time. Great artifacts, visuals and a participatory option that help bring... More
