You could walk right past the MOC if you weren't paying attention, but its worth staying alert. This is a smashing little museum with interesting exhibits and plenty of hands-on for the kids. Yes, there are lots of places like that. What really sets MOC apart are the people, the museum volunteers: folk whose enthusiasm is contageous and knowledge is astounding. You virtually get a personal tour, packed with explanations and anecdotes. MOC isn't big but with this kind of visitor experience, you could be there longer than you ever expected. And the wonderfully unpretentious tea and biscuits upstairs finishes it off a treat. The MOC is an absolute gem.

I was greeted at the entrance, paid my fee and was passed onto a guide who showed me what was in the current exhibition (Calling All Shipping) There was technical assistance to answer my questions. At the end there was a cup of tea and a biscuit, included in the price of entry (£3)

Run by passionate volunteers in a converted working-mans club in the town centre of Burntisland, The Communication Museum is home to a stunning array of authentic communication devices. It is a veritable treasure trove of electronics and communications dating back more than 100 years. Think morse code, light houses, semaphor, radio, music, TV, digital and more...
Fun for the kids, fascinating for the adults, and such friendly staff on hand to talk you through everything. It is only a few ££ entry, and includes a cup of tea and a cake in the cafe area.
My only negative would be that it was very very cold inside. Although we were there on the weekend of opening, so hopefully it will warm up as the season wears on.
Thank you!

This is a great little museum, very interesting and staff very helpful. Exhibitions change regularly so you can go a couple of times a year without feeling bored.
