Opening hours


Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries (DCL&G) - a new museum, gallery spaces, cafe, shop and reading rooms all adjioning the world's 1st Carnegie Library.

This spectacular £12.4million award-winning new building (EAA Building of the Year), which opened in May 2017,  links superbly with the world’s first Carnegie Library and houses a new museum, exhibition galleries, local history Reading Room, new children’s library and a mezzanine café with stunning views over the landscaped garden to Dunfermline Abbey and the Heritage Quarter.

As one of Scotland’s former ancient capitals, Dunfermline has both a remarkable royal history and an impressive industrial heritage. Dunfermline’s past is brought to life in the new museum with fascinating stories retold through a series of special films, inspiring interviews, engaging computer games and, of course, our collections.

Nestled in Dunfermline’s Heritage Quarter, DCL&G will provide a new home for culture.

Our lovely cafe is run by local company Heaven Scent - find out more at www.heavenscentcoffeeshop.co.uk
