S4M-05567: £2.8m Heritage Lottery Funding for New Dunfermline Museum and Art Gallery

That the Parliament warmly welcomes funding of £2.8 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund toward the establishment of a flagship museum and art gallery in the heritage quarter of Dunfermline; understands that the new facility will incorporate the Carnegie Library, archives and local history services; believes that the museum and art gallery will add to the historical diversity of architecture in the heart of Dunfermline, which includes the 11th century-founded abbey where Robert Bruce is famously buried, the palace established by King Malcolm Canmore when he made Dunfermline the capital of Scotland, the 16th century-founded Abbot House and the ancient Pittencrieff Park; considers that the new museum and art gallery will boost the profile and economy of Dunfermline, and is confident that they will remind locals and visitors alike of the cultural heritage of the “Auld Grey Toun”.
