4 July 2019 - 12 January 2020
To celebrate the museum’s 50th anniversary, we focus on the last 50 years of the fishing industry charting the changes to the fleets, the harbours, the livelihoods and the lives of those who work to put fish on our tables.
Anstruther’s national museum, founded by a Charitable Trust and opened in July 1969, celebrates its golden anniversary this year.
Starting life as a relatively small site based around a historic courtyard, it has gradually spread to take in various other buildings including a former boatyard and even a pub. Along the way, many talented and dedicated people, both staff and volunteers, have ensured that the Museum and its activities have grown and flourished.
The collections are now Recognised as a Nationally Significant Collection and the Museum is a hub for numerous community activities including coastal rowing, boat-building, exhibitions and events.
In this talk, Linda Fitzpatrick, Curator, will review the developments of the last 50 years and look forward to some exciting plans for the future.
