Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum

Steel tycoon, stockbroker, writer, lecturer, entrepreneur, philanthropist - Andrew Carnegie was one of the great Scots of the 19th century. His life has left a huge international legacy, but as his birthplace cottage testifies he came from humble beginnings. Adjacent to the cottage is the beautiful Art Deco museum hall, built by Andrew Carnegie’s widow in 1928 to explore his business career and philanthropy.

Andrew Carnegie gave away 90% of his personal wealth, and supported the founding of internationally renowned landmarks such as Carnegie Hall in New York, the Peace Palace in The Hague and the Mount Wilson Observatory in California.
