While Dunfermline Carnegie Library and Galleries and Kirkcaldy Galleries have reopened (since April 26th), St Andrews Museum will remain closed while ongoing building work is in progress. In the meantime, find out more about our Art-astic exhibition!



While restrictions are in place, the number of people we can have in the building at one time is limited and we will be operating a booking system.

You can book a one hour visit for up to 4 people using this online form

Please call us on 01334 659380 if your group size is larger than 4 people. Also, if you are making a booking less than 24 hours before your visit, please phone us or make the booking in person.

When visiting, we ask that all customers: 

  1. Bring your appointment email or another form of identification 
  2. Wear a face covering 

While we’re loving welcoming people back, in these difficult times we would ask you to be mindful of guidance around the tiers system and not to travel to visit our venues from other regions. Fife is currently Tier 3.

Current Exhibition: Art-tastic

The latest exhibition at St Andrews Museum is the fantastic family-friendly Art-tastic, from 19 December, which invites visitors to focus on the art of storytelling by creating stories and verse inspired by some 20 works of art.

The Café in the Park

The Café in the Park is open but is not included in your one-hour slot. Places are limited so we recommend you ask staff to reserve you a table when you arrive. 

Toilets are open but on a one-person at a time basis. If there is a queue, please keep to a two-metre distance from others. 

You are welcome to book multiple visits, but please be aware will be unable to extend your one-hour slot if there is another person booked in after you. Exceeding your one-hour slot will impact on the next visitor. We will only be able to accommodate visitors arriving without pre-booking if there is an available timeslot.
