A window on Fife’s past, Fife Folk Museum in the village of Ceres,
offers an interesting and entertaining day out for all the family with activities for all ages.
The museum is housed in a range of older buildings including former weavers cottages, the old weigh-house and the tolbooth.
Join us in celebrating our 50th birthday this year!

Fife Folk Museum opens for its 50th anniversary season on Sunday 1st April, with new exhibitions The Swinging 60s, Working Horses of Fife, and Boneshakers to Butterchurns - a celebration of the museum's very first artefacts.

There's also our 1850’s cottage room, heritage trails for adults and children, and new opportunity to imprison yourself, friends or family in the cells of our historic Weigh House.

The Heritage Arts Hub programme will be buzzing with Pop Art, sewing, weaving, traditional games, saddlery, wash-day and whisky-tasting events in the pipeline.

Watch this space!

Our celebrated Monday Evening Talk programme restarts on Monday 2nd April at 7pm with Old Coaching Roads of Fife by Robert Scott.

All welcome to come along to our talks. Tea and coffee will be available after the talk. Admission is free but donations of £2 towards the upkeep of the Museum are much appreciated.

Find out more about the history of the museum buildings, when the museum was opened and the development of the buildings over the last 50 years. 


Almost all of those invloved in running the museum are volunteers.

We are always keen to welcome new volunteers.
