website creator DCL&G is a new museum, gallery spaces, cafe, shop and reading rooms all adjoining the world’s 1st Carnegie Library.
This spectacular £12.4million award-winning new building (EAA Building of the Year), which opened in in May 2017, 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 café 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 is 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.
