What's ON

Book a museum & galleries or local studies visit

The museum and gallery spaces at Kirkcaldy Galleries & Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries are preparing to open their doors again.

We’re looking forward to a summer of activity and sunshine with family-friendly exhibitions to delight our audiences with Explore! at Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries and Blooming Marvellous at Kirkcaldy Galleries.

Art-tastic at St Andrews Museum will open as soon as current building work allows.

Museum visits will still need to be pre-booked, with limited numbers, and will follow the FACTS guidance.
