Had a drive down to Kirkcaldy this morning, and as the weather wasn't in my favour, decided to look for something to do indoors.

I was not quite sure what to expect inside,... More

Kirkcaldy galleries is a enjoy full place to visit. There is an art gallery, a museum, a cafe and a library for kids and adults. The kids love the library and my teenagers loved the museum. We all enjoyed eating at the cafe and I hope we will be visiting it again!

This was our first visit for a few years and noticed a big improvement in the public areas since refurbishments. All the areas we were in were bright and clean, with more than adequate room to see the exhibits. We went to see the exhibition on the bridges over the Forth and enjoyed what was on show.
