Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries



1-7 Abbot Street,


KY12 7NL




Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries (DCL&G) is an award-winning museum, gallery spaces, shop and reading rooms all adjoining the world's first Carnegie Library. Situated in Scotland's ancient capital, the museum offers a stunning view across to Dunfermline Abbey. The Galleries bring the past, present and future of Dunfermline – one of Scotland’s ancient Royal capitals – to life, by showcasing historic collections and superb built heritage, and by conserving and interpreting historic objects for future generations.

Our newest art exhibition, Brushstrokes, features fantastic art from artists including William McTaggart, L S Lowry, Elizabeth Blackadder, Anne Redpath, the Scottish Colourists and the Glasgow Boys. Whether you prefer traditional or contemporary, have a soft spot for a still life, a love of landscapes or a passion for portraits, there is truly something for everyone. 

The Museum Shop is well stocked with a wide variety of gifts, including items that have been specially commissioned for the building along with unique artistic works and we are thrilled to have teamed up with The Granary to bring you interesting, fresh and delicious food in our new friendly and relaxed café at DCLG. The Granary‘s passion for quality in food and drinks is the perfect match for our 5 star library and galleries and it is open every day until an hour before the building closes.
