Visit the Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum in Dunfermline to discover the fascinating life story of the famous 19th century philanthropist.

Well, tell them that Dippy would have never been found had it not be for Andrew Carnegie!

Have fun with the interactive exhibits - teach the kids to use Morse code, find out how the game of Monopoly was originally invented and learn about the importance of the Heinz beans logo. The dress-up station is a family favourite too.
