Cupar Museum and Heritage Centre is located in Cupar Railway Station buildings next to the Electric Car Charge Point.
The Museum is now open for our 2018 Season.
Details of Opening Hours are listed in the right hand column,
Cupar Museum and Heritage Centre is located in the former staff house at the east end of the Cupar Railway Station, itself a classic 19th century railway building.
The Museum welcomes visitors and has amassed a wide variety of Cupar related photographs, documents and artefacts which are on display in the Centre.
Our exhibition illustrates important aspects of the history of Cupar from early Pictish past, the town centre of the late 19th Century to more recent past events.
For 2018, we have updated the Story of Cupar with some new exhibits.
"Work and War Horses 1914 to 1918"is our new feature exhibition. This exhibition is on loan from the the Royal Highland Show Society and will be on show from April till August.
Thereafter, from August until the end of October, the exhibition will reflect the end of WW1 and the effects on Cupar of the post-war aftermath.
