Methil Heritage Centre is set to reopen after securing funding from Fife Council.

It will start welcoming visitors again next Wednesday (3 April) thanks to the money from the local authority’s Levenmouth Area Committee Community Renewal Fund. 

Opening hours will be Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 11am-4.30pm and Saturday from 1-4pm. 

The Heritage Centre, which has been closed since 2020, contains a small display capturing the history of Methil and surrounding area, from prehistoric times to the present day. 

Councillor Colin Davidson, convener of Levenmouth Area Committee, said: "Our past, history and culture helps us inform our decisions for the future.

"The reopening of the Methil Heritage Centre allows visitors and residents to the area explore our past, engage in cultural activities and as a resource to help the local communities shape our future.

"The building and its staff are a community resource that will enrich everyone who makes use of it and is another symbol of the regeneration of the lower Methil and Levenmouth area."

Chris McLean, OnFife’s Head of Cultural Heritage & Wellbeing, said: “There has been a lot of work done to get Methil Heritage Centre ready to open and we want to make sure we are offering activities that meet the needs of local people as well as creating a destination for visitors to the area, especially as we look forward to trains running to Cameron Bridge and Leven this summer. 

“We are grateful for support from Fife Council, the Friends of Methil Heritage and other key stakeholders and look forward to welcoming people to the Centre over the coming months.”
