St Andrews Museum
St Andrews Museum is situated in a beautiful Victorian mansion within the grounds of Kinburn Park. Within the shop there is space for displaying a range of arts and crafts which we are happy to sell, on a commission basis, on behalf of the artist - please ask the staff for further information.
The museum is home to the 'Cafe in the Park' selling homemade food during Museum opening hours.
The long term display, St Andrews A-Z, is housed in the downstairs gallery. This tells the story of the history of St Andrews through star objects and images from the Museum's collections. The upstairs Kinburn Gallery features a programme of changing temporary exhibitions on a wide variety of topics.There is a programme of events and activities throughout the year.
