Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries will be a spectacular new museum and art gallery in the heart of Dunfermline’s Heritage Quarter. Designed by award-winning architect Richard Murphy, the new and imaginative build will integrate superbly with the world’s first Carnegie Library.

The Galleries will bring the past, present and future of Dunfermline – one of Scotland’s ancient Royal capitals – to life, by showcasing historic collections and superb built heritage, and by conserving and interpreting historic objects for future generations.

As well enjoying as the unique atmosphere of the historic library, visitors can spend time in our wonderful museum and exhibition galleries, and delight in the stunning views from our mezzanine café.

Discover the connections between Saint Margaret of Scotland, King Robert the Bruce and King Charles the First (he’s the one who got his head chopped off). Find out how the people of Dunfermline lived throughout the years, from leisure and culture to work and homes, through fascinating objects from the town's recent and industrial past.
