The Scottish Fisheries Museum turns 50 this year and we are celebrating in style!
Starting from the 4th of July 2019 (our official anniversary date) we have a year of events scheduled so everyone can join in the celebrations.
It all begins at Rosyth, where our flagship, the Reaper, who many will know, has been undergoing major restoration. On the 4th of July, she will be handed over in a ceremony at Rosyth before making her way along the Forth, escorted by a flotilla of 50 boats or more.
Meanwhile in Anstruther there will be a welcoming party waiting. From 2-6pm there will be events at the harbour to herald the Reaper’s arrival. We look forward to seeing as many people there as possible to give her the greeting she deserves.
And that’s just the beginning! From a light parade to treasure hunts, exhibitions and even some ghostly goings on, The Scottish Fisheries museum will have a jam-packed programme to bring you. We are not just staying still either, we will be attending other events across Scotland in the next year talking about our 50th Anniversary, including holding displays at various industrial museums in Scotland thanks to Go Industrial.
Further details of all the events mentioned will be posted on our website as the programme is finalised.
