BECK have been appointed as the Exhibition Fit-Out Contractor to construct and install the museum displays, which have been designed by Redman Design.
The project in Dunfermline sees the development of the town’s Carnegie Library (its founder being born in the town) into a new museum, art gallery and library within the heart of the historic town centre. The museum will sit within a new-build extension that will serve to add capacity to the current library building.
DMAG will create a gateway to the town’s long and illustrious web of history by drawing together the golden threads of Royal Dunfermline, Dunfermline the ancient capital of Scotland, and Dunfermline’s great Benedictine Monastery.
It will tell the story of Dunfermline and its people, conserving and interpreting historic objects for future generations. The importance of Dunfermline as a historic centre for medieval royalty, agriculture, industry and philanthropy will be brought to life by showcasing the town’s historic collections and superb built heritage.
This will be realised through permanent and temporary exhibitions, displays and events, archives, local studies and family history services, creative and inspiring learning experiences, and opportunities for group and individual participation.
