THE MUSEUM

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 main entrance to the Museum is across the wooden footbridge from the Ceres Car Park

The Museum, which is run by volunteers, is well worth a visit and you are assured of a friendly welcome.

The Cottar's Kitchen in the Museum

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 Annex is on the east side of High Street - access from the main Museum building

SCHOOLS

The Museum welcomes visits from schools and also arranges for volunteers to visit local schools with relevant artifacts 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 Electicity, Life 100 Years Ago and Toys.

We are always happy to try to accomodate a topic and an age range. If you are interested in a visit to your class please contact us at info@fifefolkmuseum.org

See the SCHOOLS page for more information.
