About Pictavia

About PictaviaPictavia is an entertaining and engaging experience for those who are new to Pictish history, as well as anyone with an established interest in this period. An all-weather attraction which is open throughout the year, Pictavia tells the fascinating story of the Picts through a mixture of interactive exhibits, original artefacts and replicas. Your visit begins with an audio-visual show narrated by celebrated actor Brian Cox, which tells the story of the Picts from the Roman invasion through to their battles with the Vikings. From there, you can listen to their music in the Tower of Sound, use touch-screen computers to investigate the mysteries of their carved stones, and experience the sights and sounds of Dunnichen in our Battle Tunnel.
