We’ve enjoyed a summer of activity and sunshine with the family-friendly exhibition Blooming Marvellous. Don’t worry though, you can visit our exhibition till 24 24 October. At Blooming Marvellous you will see lots of lovely paintings, pottery and other interesting items, as well as quizzes and craft videos with some great ideas for simple things to make and do at home.

There’s no need to book for a visit to the library – you can find out more about what is currently available here: Kirkcaldy Library.

You can drop in or make an advance appointment to visit our Local & Family History room. 

Unfortunately, the popular Wemyss Café is currently closed. Wknow how much visitors enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a bite to eat when they visit and, having closed the café because of Covid-19, we are now taking the time to consider what we can best offer in this spaceOur aim is to return with a highquality service that’s in keeping with this great venue and provides the great experience we want you to have.
