Perth’s first Museum Late event a historic success as visitors party with the Picts

Perth Museum and Art Gallery’s launched the first of its Museum Late events with a Party with the Picts on Friday night.

Featuring a DJ, performances from Perth-based Adventure Circus and free beer on entry, the event was based on late-night museum concepts popular in the likes of London, Berlin and Edinburgh.

Friday’s Museum Late also launched Perth Museum and Art Gallery’s ground-breaking summer exhibition, Picts and Pixels, which brings visitors face-to-face with the Pictish past using the latest in gaming and digital technology. Highlights include a reconstruction of Moredun Top Hill Fort in Perth which visitors can ‘fly through’ and explore, a 2D facial reconstruction of the face of a Pict, and virtual reconstructions of a set of traditional Pict-era exhibits.

A programme of events will accompany the exhibition, which runs until 13th August. These include digital skills workshops for young people led by the University of St Andrews, which is a collaborator on the exhibition.
