It was opened as a living monument to prehistoric Perthshire.
The Crannog Centre on the banks of Loch Tay was painstakingly put together as an interactive time capsule, to show how ancient Scots lived and worked.
The Kenmore attraction has now been upgraded with technology from the 21st century, which could become a catalyst for future expansion plans.
Superfast fibre broadband has been installed at the remote site and bosses say it is making a huge difference to the centre and will help it grow to attract a bigger international audience.
The Crannog team is planning a major expansion and hopes to secure the Dalerb picnic site – at the opposite side of the loch – through a community asset transfer.
The centre has applied to Forestry Land Services to buy the site, which is 12 times bigger than the current one, with plans to build several crannogs and present a better picture of ancient Perthshire communities.
A petition has been launched online to gauge interest in the sale.
The centre’s Ellen Pryde said: “Faster broadband has made a huge difference to the museum.
“The centre receives thousands of visitors a year from all across the world, while also working with local community groups, crafters, musicians and schools to deliver both in-house events and outreach days throughout the year.”
She said: “Overall, having broadband available in our rural area has enabled our business to grow not only commercially, but functionally and with a greater social impact as well.”
The new tech is part of the Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband programme, which has benefited around 943,000 homes and businesses.
Scotland’s Connectivity Minister Paul Wheelhouse said: “As we fully embrace the Digital Age, it’s wonderful to see that the Crannog Centre, an iconic visitor attraction demonstrating how our ancestors lived in the Iron Age, is one of the many households and businesses that make up the 60% of those provide with access to broadband through the Digital Scotland programme, that have now chosen to upgrade to faster broadband services.”
The scheme is delivered by Highlands and Islands Enterprise and the Scottish Government.
