The Museum is now open for 2019. Hours of Opening are shown in the panel on the right of this page.

Should anyone wish to contact us for information, discussions or donations, we are happy to see you any Wednesday afternoon in the Museum at the Railway Station between 2pm and 4.30pm when we are working on our archiving and future exhibitions.


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.

Planning for Cupar’s Future today

Cupar Heritage is pleased to be associated with on-going projects, led by Cupar Development Trust (CDT), to make Cupar a rewarding visitor destination and a great place to live and work.

Cupar Heritage has partnered with CDT on the Cupar Town Interpretive Plan which will help present the town better to visitors.  The work is now being taken forward by the Classic Cupar Project http://www.classiccupar.org/classic-cupar/ with the involvement of Cupar Heritage. CDT and CMC Associates, and the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, Fife Council and Fife LEADER.  Other Cupar organisations are also working on this. (Click on either of the Bold Titles above to be taken to the relevant websites for further info.)

Cupar Heritage has also been pleased to supply old photographs for the hoarding covering the Bonnygate"Gap Site" with exhibits on this historic Cupar street.


Hidden Burgh: Archives Project

The University of St Andrews is involved in the Archives Revealed project “Hidden Burgh: restoring Cupar’s place at the heart of Fife”. It is being financed largely by the Archives Revealed funding programme from The National Archives and the Pilgrim Trust, and will last for one year. The University holds the records for the Cupar Burgh from 1364 to 1975 and the objective is to have them fully catalogued so that they are accessible to everyone. Part of the project involves engagement with the Cupar community, giving the local people the opportunity to be part of the project. With that in mind, the University is looking for volunteers who are interested in being involved in some indexing/transcription projects. It is anticipated that the volunteers will work in a group setting at the Cupar Library using copies of the original records.

If you are interested in being part of this exciting venture, please contact Christine Wood at caw23@st-andrews.ac.uk or telephone 01334 461727/462339

We offer an enquiry service to assist anyone with a question about the area's local history, utilising our small library collection which is supplemented by newspaper cuttings and additional archive material.

We have built up a good working knowledge of alternative sources of information if we do not hold the records ourselves.
