This museum, sited on the harbour front in Anstruther, tells the story of Scottish fishing and its people from the earliest times to the present. We have a large collection of boats (full-size and models), tools, personal possessions, paintings and photographs displayed in historic buildings. A highlight of the tour is our Fisherman's Cottage where you can see how fisherfolk lived in the 1900s.
Our Exhibition Room hosts three - four special exhibitions a year and we have monthly art exhibitions in the Merchant's Room Gallery (admission free).
We also have a friendly tearoom serving homemade soup and snacks, and a well stocked shop where you can find unusual nautical gifts and books.
