Opening hours

      

“Imagine how good it looks on the inside?” is the question everyone is asking and all will be revealed 18 May when Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries (DCL&G) opens to the public.

This spectacular £12.4million award-winning new building (EAA Building of the Year) 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 cafĂ© 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 will be 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.

The building FREE to access, but there is an opportunity to be one of the first to see it at An Audience with the Architect, Richard Murphy 8 May. Click here to find out more about this fundraising event.
