Tales of the local Pict's and some of the wonderful items that have been unearthed, the explanation of some of the symbols they used, Play a Pictish Harp or just take in the storyboards or visit their small shop.

This is a tiny museum packed with interesting info, the stones were impressive and the interactive displays informative. There is even the chance to try out some rubbings with paper and crayons which my girls liked.

They’ve certainly packed a lot into a small space! It’s a treasure trove of information on the Picts and local history. Enthusiastic and very knowledgeable staff. Don’t miss it!
