TEAROOM AND EATERY
This provides an array of delicious home cooking and the Hatters Collection of seedikin bread, tomato ketchup, house dressing, jam and chutney.
There is wheelchair access to the Tearoom and the other two rooms in the original weavers’ cottages on the higher level, to the Annex and to most of the garden.
There are steps to the weighhouse and the dungeon, with handrails.
The Fife Folk Museum is in the village of Ceres, about 2 miles from Cupar - see where we are on the FIND US page.
The Museum, which is run by volunteers, is well worth a visit and you are assured of a friendly welcome.
The Museum’s collections include agricultural and craft tools, costume, toys and games, domestic equipment, pottery, paintings, and much more. A few of these items are shown on the EXHIBITS page with more information on the COLLECTIONS page.
The Museum welcomes visits from schools and also arranges for volunteers to visit local schools with relevant artefacts from the Museum collections.
We were busy last year with several visits to local schools. We have covered all primary stages with talks about Life Before Electricity, Life 100 Years Ago and Toys.
We are always happy to try to accommodate a topic and an age range. If you are interested in a visit to your class please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
See the SCHOOLS page for more information.
CALL FOR NEW MUSEUM VOLUNTEERS
As the article above indicates the newly refurbished Museum would like to recruit new volunteers before it reopens on !st April. (see our poster).
Training sessions will take place on Friday March 27 (4pm to 5.30 pm) and on Saturday 28 March from 10.00-12.00 and from 2.00-4.00 pm.
When the Museum is open people are needed to take money and to guide visitors but there there are also various 'back-office' activities, such as cataloguing, housekeeping and maintenance required at all times.
If you are interested, please contact us by telephone or by email.
