Catch the Perfect Day Out

Scottish Fisheries Museum

In a spectacular location opposite the harbour in the fishing village of Anstruther, in the beautiful East Neuk of Fife, we are a National Museum, telling the story of the Scottish fishing industry, its boats, harbours and communities.

Explore our fascinating range of historic buildings, boats and displays, see our boatbuilders at work, take the helm in our wheelhouse, find a welcome in our fisherman's cottage and discover how fishermen and women, craftsmen and engineers have all worked together to bring us our fish - from sea to supper.

Since it was established in 1967, the Museum Trust has collected artefacts connected to the history of fishing from all around the coast of Scotland, as well as from the Western and Northern Isles.  The entire collection cared for by the Scottish Fisheries Museum is a Recognised Collection of National Significance, awarded by Museums Galleries Scotland on behalf of the Scottish Government.
