Scottish Fisheries Museum
The Scottish Fisheries Museum in Anstruther records the history of the Scottish fishing industry and its people from early times to the present day.
The main aim of the Scottish Fisheries Museum is to stimulate informed interest in the development of the Scottish fishing industry among people of all ages and beyond Scotland by opening to museum exhibitions and many educational and research activities.
The purpose is to tell the story as Scottish fisheries have become such an important part of the lives of so many Scots, through a constant process of innovation.
The narrative of the museum presents the display of wonderful examples of boats and historical fishing equipment in addition to illustrating the geography and social structures of fishing communities.
The exhibit honors the ways of life, for men and women who, over the centuries, have faced natural and man-made adversities and yet have maintained a proud and distinct tradition, spelling out skills, customs, clothing, creativity and resilience, and improving the understanding of the various external, environmental, technological, political and commercial circumstances that have had and continue to have an impact on them.
Social history is exploited through personal belongings, textiles, household equipment and works of art
