Andrew Carnegie's Birthplace Museum

Birthplace of the famous Scot who emigrated to the USA and became the richest man in the world

Come along and discover the original birthplace cottage of Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919). Find out how Andrew, born a weaver’s son in Dunfermline, emigrated to America and became the richest man in the world, and one of the most generous philanthropists of all time. The Memorial Hall adjoining the cottage tells the story of Andrew Carnegie’s lasting legacy which includes internationally renowned landmarks such as the Carnegie Hall in New York, the Peace Palace in The Hague, over 2,800 public libraries around the globe, Mount Wilson Observatory in California, and, of course, the Diplodocus carnegii dinosaur!
