New Look for Pictavia

Over the winter months Pictavia has had a makeover! In 2010, Angus Council approved a capital works programme to improve the entrance to Pictavia, and to provide more storage space within the attraction itself. So, over a six week period in January and February, Pictavia closed to the public while the works took place. The reception desk has been moved and new shelving units put in place which means the area is now much brighter with lots of open space. This area is still a VisitScotland Information Centre, so visitors can find out everything they need to know about Angus, and members of staff are always on hand to give expert help and advice.

Pictavia has been painted both outside and in, and a state-of-the-art whiteboard has been installed which is the same as the ones now used in local primary schools. A new storage area has been built which means we have somewhere to put all our chairs when they are not being used, and a small kitchen area installed which will really help up when cleaning up after craft activities! All of this means that Pictavia is looking brighter and better than ever before – come and have a look for yourself!
