    At the centre of Scotland‛s only Pictish Monastic National Monument, the Museum at Tarbat unravels some of the mysteries of the Picts, explaining through its award winning archaeology programme fascinating details about these enigmatic people and their way of life on this intensely historic peninsula.  ‛A‛ Listed Tarbat Old Parish Church, home to the Discovery Centre, is in itself an historic timeline of six churches that have stood on this site with the remains of part of the crypt dating from as early as the 8th century.  On display, beautiful sculpture and craft-working objects, architectural features, local exhibitions, photo archives and detailed interpretation provide the contents of our Museum – ‛a real gem of history well worth the visit.‛
