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 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

See the SCHOOLS page for more information.

The Museum welcomes new volunteers (see our poster). When the Museum is open people are needed to take money and to guide visitors. 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.
