What's ON

We are delighted to welcome you to Kirkcaldy Galleries.

Museum visits no longer need to be pre-booked but please continue to follow current Covid guidance.

Our gallery space will be temporarily closed from Monday 9 May as preparations begin for Jack Vettriano: The Early Years 

We’re on the countdown now to the opening of Jack Vettriano: The Early Years on Friday 17 June and the preparation work under way means our gallery space will be closed from Monday 9 May.
But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to see and do. Our Local Studies department on the first floor will be open as usual and it’s the place to go to look at old photographs of Kirkcaldy and the surrounding area or research past events in the local newspapers. Or how about researching your family tree or who lived in your house when it was built?
We’re really excited to be hosting the Jack Vettriano show but we’re also delighted that it’s being supported by a fantastic free exhibition called Brushstrokes, which will feature a dazzling array of works from the Fife Collection and also opens on 17 June.

You can find out more about what is currently available in our library here: Kirkcaldy Library.
