Return to Welcome to Fife Fife Folk Museum

Fife Folk Museum

Fife Folk Museum is located in the High Street in the pretty village of Ceres. Its premises consist of the former tolbooth of the burgh of barony, adjacent weavers’ cottages (early 19th century) (plus a modern extension across the road opened 1984).

All its buildings on the south side of the High Street are listed category A, and the museum is in a conservation area.

The building was given to the Central (now Cupar) and North Fife Preservation Society by the Mitchell family of Ceres in 1964, and re-roofed with a grant from the National Trust for Scotland. The rest of the High Street was also in a dilapidated condition.

The buildings have undergone further development and restoration through the years.

The museum provides a fascinating glimpse into the working lives of the people of Fife; their agricultural life, crafts and industries, fashions, textiles and home lives.
