Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries, is a spectacular FREE museum and art gallery in the heart of the Heritage Quarter of Dunfermline in the Kingdom of Fife.
This spectacular £12.4million award-winning new building (EAA Building of the Year, Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland's (RIAS) Andrew Doolan prize), 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.
