Dunfermline may have been the home to many Scottish monarchs, but its most famous son was born in more modest surroundings. Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919), the son of a humble linen weaver, emigrated to the USA and made a fortune in steel. One of the great philanthropists, he gave away £350 mn for the benefit of mankind and was particularly generous to his home town, giving it Pittencrief park, public baths, a library and an annual Festival of Music and Arts. The Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum is the small cottage in Moodie Street where Carnegie was born. The rooms are furnished as they were in his lifetime and the millionaire himself sits at the his desk in his study.
There are interactive displays, weaving demonstrations, temporary exhibits and children's activities that will keep the children occupied, plus there is a cafe, garden and gift shop to enjoy too.Nearby Places in Guide: Dunfermline
