With the present public health emergency continuing, the museum is closed to the public and volunteers until further notice.         

We will update information on social media as and when circumstances change.

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.

Cupar Museum and Heritage Centre is located in the former house at the east end of the Cupar Railway Station building. A historical building itself, we are very proud to go onwards into the 21st century within this magnificent 19th century building.


Cupar Museum is an independently funded organization, established as a local museum for the benefit of the local community and visitors to our area.

We rely upon the goodwill of visitors, subscribing members of Cupar heritage and occasional grant aid to exist.

Volunteers with a range of skills are always welcome to join us. Expressions of interest should be sent by email to :-

Cupar Heritage Trustees 2019
Guthrie Hutton – Chair; Ian Copland – Treasurer; Mike Edwards- Minutes Secretary; Fiona Henderson; Brian Murray; Gavin Waddell; Ken Cameron; Bruce Reid, Wynne Harley.
