Kirkcaldy Museum & Art Gallery

Fine Art

Set in the town's lovely Ward Memorial Gardens, Kirkcaldy Museum & Art Gallery houses an interesting collection of decorative and fine arts of both local and national importance.

The gallery offers an outstanding collection of 18th-20th century Scottish paintings and boasts what is probably the largest public collection of works by William McTaggart and Scottish Colourist SJ Peploe outside the National Galleries of Scotland.

The collection also includes a significant number of the works of the Glasgow Boys, as will as modern works ranging from Sickert and Lowry to Redpath and Bellany.


An award winning permanent museum display entitled 'Changing Places' tells the story of the social, industrial and natural heritage of the district.

It includes areas of open display, room and natural history sets and special 'please touch' sections.


The three first floor temporary galleries offer a lively programme of changing exhibitions throughout the year, featuring arts, crafts, photography, social and natural history.

The museum aims to bring you the best from the UK and abroad with shows which range from the avant-garde to the whimsical - and everything in between!
