Welcome to Invergordon Museum
Easily identified by our wall of murals and 'unexploded mine' from the Shore Road, Invergordon Museum is situated in Hayes Hall - the old dance hall of the Royal British Legion - behind the current British Legion building on Invergordon High Street.
Invergordon Museum will be open 10am until 5pm on Wednesday September 30th as part of a day of events to remember HMS Natal. The cruiser was launched in Barrow in Furness on September 30th 1905 and from January 1915 became part of the British Fleet. Whilst berthed in the Cromarty Firth on 30th December 1915 a series of explosions ripped apart HMS Natal causing her to capsize within five minutes, with the loss of over 400 lives.
The museum holds many documents relating to HMS Natal and hundreds of items that were washed ashore after the sinking or that were salvaged during the 1970s. The display has continued to grow over the last few years as the 100th anniversary year has been in people’s minds. We invite you to come along to see the exhibits.
When cruise liners are in port our volunteers welcome visitors into the museum from 10am until 4pm. For the latest list of cruise liner visits, please see
On several days throughout the season we also have a craft fair within the hall selling locally crafted items. Craft fairs will be held on Saturday 3rd and Thursday 15th October.
Although at other times we may appear 'closed', we are always happy to welcome visitors if you give us prior notice. Please send your requests via the 'Contact Us' page, or call 01349-853509.
The museum is run by the community and opened by volunteers - so your donations are vital in enabling us to open to visitors.
