  • Being from Pittsburgh this was a must to visit. The museum staff is very friendly & knowledgeable, and the museum showcases a lot of Carnegies gifts and personal objects.
  • I visited in August 2015. The museum was absolutely fantastic! It shown how Scotland turned a poor young man into a rich hero over in the USA.
  • Historic and informative. Brilliant to visit with the kids to broaden their knowledge
  • I found this a real surprise. I wandered in expecting a small, dry, local museum and was met with fascinating displays, interactive adventures and even Muppets. The first part of the museum is Andrew Carnegie's childhood home and lays out the story of how he came to go from a Dunfermline weaver's cottage to the USA and the larger hall gives the story of his rise to success and his legacy. I expected to spend perhaps fifteen minutes and stayed for over an hour and I fully intend to go back because I'm sure there are things I missed.
  • Really interesting to hear about the history of Andrew Carnegie and the old town of Dunfermline.
