Who doesn't love a painting of polar bears? See it in the flesh (along with lots of other lovely things) at our new family-friendly exhibition Explore! Travellers and Trailblazers, opening on Saturday 14 November.

Opening at Dunfermline Carnegie Library and Galleries on 14 November is our family-friendly exhibition, Explore! Travellers and Trailblazers. Packed with fascinating facts and amazing objects from around the world. As a little taster what could be better than this atmospheric painting of polar bears on an ice floe, The Cold North by John Macallan Swan.

While we’re loving welcoming people back to our museums & galleries, in these difficult times we would ask you to be mindful of guidance around tiers and not to travel to visit our venues from an area in a category higher than Fife’s (Tier Two).

Who remembers this?

How many of you remember "Penny for the Guy"? Wheeling the Guy around in an old pushchair, chapping on as many doors as you dare, to get money to buy fireworks (or in our case extra money for sweets!) for Guy Fawkes night.....

Do you have any stories you would like to share with us? We would love to hear from you.

Old photos of miners, can you help with identification of training slides? There are lots more to come I think.
#ShineOnFife

Staff from Local Studies and Archives are still busily scanning our enormous collections of photographs and I started scanning this fantastic collection of mining training slides for a magic lantern show which consists of diagrams and photographs, some of which have titles and others that don't. We have no idea where these slides come from or which mine is featured and I was really enjoying myself until the dreaded red line appeared on my scans. I now have to wait until Epson can give me a new scanner that works with slides so I'm back to the flat photographs. If you can enlighten me at all about these slides I would be very grateful. Hopefully I can get this collection finished before Christmas. In the meantime this one is called uncoupling the rope from the tub. #ShineOnFife

Did you know 27th Oct is known as Black Cat Day?

Here's Neville giving a shout out to all his fellow black cat readers.

Cat and Mous by J.K. Annand

Said the poussie
Til the mousie,
'Let me intil
Your wee housie.
We will play
And we will sing
And we will dance
A jingo/ring.'

Said the mousie
Til the poussie,
'Ye'll no get
In my wee housie.
Ye are big
And I am wee
And ye wad eat me
For your tea.'
