Attraction Information

Visit the Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum in Dunfermline to discover the fascinating life story of the famous 19th century philanthropist. Find out how a poor Scottish boy, whose family was driven to America by poverty, grew up to become one of the richest men in the world. Your kids love Dippy the Diplodocus? 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.  

Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum has a delightful little garden where you can sit back and relax. Plus, there are regular events and activities for kids. Oh, and don’t forget that entry is free, so no reason to miss out!
