Dunfermline Museum
Dunfermline Museum
This fascinating local museum has exhibits on Dunfermline heritage as a centre for linen weaving and damask, with historic looms, weaving tools and patterns.


The museum has closed until 2016, when it will reopen in a new location on Abbot street, beside the Dunfermline Carnegie Library. The new museum will be a state of the art venue, combining a museum, library, art gallery, and views over neighbouring historic attractions, with an overhead outdoor walkway offering a panoramic view of Dunfermline's heritage district.

Part of the new museum project includes an archaeological excavation of the space behind the library and old bank site. The new museum space will offer a new children's library, a cafe, offices, a 2 floors of museum space to exhibit the town's heritage collections of objects, plus another 3 galleries for temporary arts, crafts, and heritage exhibits.

We'll update this page with details when the museum is ready to open again in 2016. Stay tuned!
