St Andrews Museum

St Andrews Museum is located in Kinburn Park, a short walk west of North Street. Built as a private residence in 1855 and named after a Crimean battle of the same year, Kinburn Castle became the home of St Andrews Museum in 1991. It is owned and operated by Fife Council.

The Museum explores St Andrews' heritage from early times to the 20th century, covering both the medieval period when the Cathedral was one of the great religious centres of Europe and the growth of tourism starting in the Victorian era. In the Arrival Gallery, imaginative displays combine with interesting artifacts to tell the town's story through the ages. The Kaleidoscope Gallery features a changing programme of temporary exhibitions on a wide variety of topics. The Activty Centre hosts lectures and activities for children throughout the year. The Museum café serves light meals, teas, coffees and home baking.

Kinburn Park offers tennis courts as well as bowling and putting greens.
