Cupar Heritage Centre

HOME PAGE


Cupar Museum and Heritage Centre is located in Cupar Railway Station buildings next to the Electric Car Charge Point.

The Museum re-opened for our 2018 Season on Saturday 14th April 2018.

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.

Cupar Heritage Talks

We organise a series of talks, open to the public, which are related to heritage matters. These meetings take place in the Age Concern Building, Provost Wynd, Cupar, starting at 7.30pm usually on the last Monday of each month. Everyone is welcome to stay on after the talk to meet others over a coffee or tea and biscuits. Parking is available in the adjacent Bonnygate Car Park.

The full programme of 2018 talks is on the Heritage Talks page.

Making Cupar Great - Planning for our Future today

Cupar Heritage is pleased to be associated with the ongoing project, lead by Cupar Development Trust (CDT), to make Cupar a rewarding visitor destination and a great place to live and work.

Cupar Heritage partnered with CDT in a working group to bring forward the Cupar Town Interpretive Plan as the means to establish priorities and focus effort. A Summary has been written by David Kirk, the chairman of Cupar Developmemt Trust.

Technical Assistance

We currently have a need for help with Social Media, Facebook and Twitter, an area that we are keen to develop.

If you can help us, or can suggest someone, please get in touch.

Volunteers

We have no paid staff and are completely run by volunteers. We encourage people to join us as volunteers and to assist us not only in looking after visitors but in taking part of the hidden side of museums, labelling, filing, researching, etc. If you are interested, please let us know.
