Dunfermline residents encouraged to submit stories to new museum

Dunfermilne MuseumLocal MSP Bill Walker is encouraging anyone with an interesting or unusual Dunfermline story to contact the team behind a project underway for the new Museum and Art Gallery.

Mr Walker, who recently welcomed a £2.8m cash boost to the museum from the Heritage Lottery Fund, said:

“This is an exciting project, which I hope will generate more tourism for our local area.  It will great if lots of people get involved in the creation of our museum and art gallery, to help it become as interesting and personal to Dunfermline as possible.

“Our new museum should reflect the proud history of Dunfermline and our cultural significance for the whole of Scotland. I believe that one of the most important ways to achieve this will come from the stories told by local people who have been the heart of our community over the years.”

The Display and Activities Team are welcoming all kinds of tales.  If, for example, you or someone you know worked at the old Hay & Robertson factory or witnessed the opening of the Forth Road Bridge, the team would love to hear from you.

Members of the public can visit them at The Abbey Room in the Carnegie Library on weekdays, or call 01383 602365.
