Pittencrieff House Museum

Pittencrieff House Museum

Pittencrieff House was built in 1610 and heightened in 1731. Here you can begin to discover among other things, the history of ‘Dunfermline Toon’.

From the outside you can see that Pittencrieff House was once a private residence. It was a home for nearly 300 years to a number of owners until Andrew Carnegie bought the grounds in 1903. He never lived in the house though, and eventually gave it to the citizens of Dunfermline.

As of May 2017,  Pittencrieff House has been closed to the public following the opening of the Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries.

The Carnegie Dunfermline Trust and Fife Council are working to bring Pittencrieff House back in to use and secure a sustainable future for this historic building.  Further information will be available through social media and local press as and when it is available.
