A LEAFLET designed by a Lochgelly firm is to help locals and tourists find out about Fife's wealth of museums and heritage centres.

A total of 15,000 publications created by Mint Modern will help locals and tourists to find great places to visit across the Kingdom.

Funding from Museums Galleries Scotland helped the Fife Museums Forum produce an eye-catching and accessible way for more people to find out about where they can visit and see in their local area.

They will be available in local museums, libraries, information and visitor centres in and around Fife and offer key information and access details for 16 museums across Fife.

As a collaborative effort the production of the leaflet has brought together many Fife museums, large and small.

Fife’s museums include OnFife venues, Kirkcaldy Galleries, St Andrews Museum and Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries, which display objects from Fife Council collections as well as changing temporary exhibitions.

There are places that connect Fife’s special cultural heritage to the world; including the Scottish Fisheries Museum, and the R&A World Golf Museum in St Andrews.

Then there are some truly unique collections accessible at the Scottish Vintage Bus Museum, Fife Folk Museum or the Museum of Communication in Burntisland.

The leaflet also includes a QR Code direct to Welcome to Fife’s website where website visitors will be able to access all the venues’ latest exhibitions and events

Fife Museums Forum Chair, Jane Freel, said: “I'm delighted the forum have worked together to create this beautiful leaflet. I am glad more people are able to pick up a copy and find out what Fife has to offer.” 

Lucy Casot, CEO of Museums Galleries Scotland, added: “This new leaflet from Fife Museums Forum is an excellent example of museums partnering to raise their profile and attract new audiences.

"We’re pleased to have supported this creative collaboration through our Forum Connections project, which was made possible with The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

“As Scotland’s national development body for museums, we look forward to continuing our work with Fife Museums Forum as we make progress towards our shared goals of a more resilient and inclusive museum sector.”
