Come and explore Kirkcaldy’s cultural hub

Kirkcaldy Galleries offers visitors a library, museum, art gallery, local & family history room, café, gift shop and children’s areas – all under one roof!

Kirkcaldy Galleries opened in  June 2013 following a major £2.5 million refurbishment undertaken by Fife Council. This historic museum was first opened in 1925 as part of the town’s War Memorial, with the library extension being added in 1928.
