Uncover the local history in Fife’s museums with a variety of fascinating exhibitions on days gone by. Explore the fishing trade in Fife’s coastal villages, trace the history of golf back in St Andrews or find out about some of the region’s famous ancestors.

With museums detailing the history of golf, fishing and local life, there is always something new to discover about Fife.

Spend an afternoon at the Scottish Fisheries Museum on the Anstruther harbour, where you can discover all about the story of fishing in Fife and Scotland. Wander between the buildings surrounding the courtyard and learn about the construction of wooden boats, see fine models of fishing vessels before the use of engines, and glimpse into the life of the fishermen and women at market.

Delve deep into the history of the region’s most famous sport at the British Golf Museum. Wander round the imaginative exhibitions, hands-on activities and stunning multimedia displays to discover original clubs, find out about unsung heroes and see a replica of the famous Claret Jug.
