Fife Folk Museum 50th birthday logo

The museum is now closed for winter. Reopening 3rd April 2019.

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 recently won funding for signage to help people in Cupar or who are visiting the area be aware that the museum is within easy travelling distance. 

Read about our very successful Pottery workshop held on on 6th October.

The museum closes for the season at the end of October. Open again 3rd April 2019

The final Monday Evening Talk of the 2018 season “Farming Yesteryear & Life in the Farm Bothy” was given on Monday 1st October by Alex Lorimer. News of our 2019 talks coming in the new year. 

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.
