“Takes most of the day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

It looks tiny but is so packed with exhibits that it takes hours to see it all; replica fisherfolk's home, history of whaling, following the herring boats - to name but a few. Good little tearoom. small but interesting shop, secluded courtyard - a real treasure. I take all my visitors there and they all want to go again.

Having visited the fisheries several times over the years due to relations living in Anstruther I still find it interesting to look around every time

“don't walk past go in!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

This place is a Tardis, around every corner there is another building or boat to view – nearly walked past the Zulu boat section (don’t miss this bit). Learned loads about Scotland’s fishing industry, heritage and the hardships of daily life. You could easily walk past this venue take my advice – don’t – just go in but make sure you go round all the halls and don’t miss any out.

“Researching family history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

The museum is well worth a visit,, the layout is excellent and the history it provides is so interesting. The role the women played in the fishing industry is intriguing and the museum certainly provided an great insight
