If you would like to volunteer at the Museum and help us to open up for visitors to our historic Royal Burgh then please see our Volunteers page.

Group Visits

Groups of all ages by prior appointment are very welcome.   The exhibition rooms are fairly small and it is a more comfortable experience for everyone to split groups into about  half a dozen persons to see each room.   We  supply volunteers to assist each group.   Let us know your requirements.

Items in store

Not everything can be on display at once so if there is something specific you wish to see let us know and we will be happy to arrange an appointment for you to see it.  Prior arrangement required.


We welcome researchers by arrangement, but we are an all-volunteer museum with no full time staff on site.

Schools Programme

School visits can be built around themes from the social history of the Royal Burgh of Crail.   They can be to the Museum or hands-on activities in the classroom through use of artefacts, photographs and documents.   Object handling and mystery object sessions are always popular.   Drama using objects, mime and role play.   Themes could include:

Suitable for P1 – 7
