HQExplorer PAST-PORT

Selected dates until Wednesday 11 August 2021

Dunfermline Abbey and Palace

Families are being invited to grab their binoculars and go on Summer Safari at Dunfermline’s Heritage Quarter throughout the upcoming school holidays.

Intrepid explorers can try tracking down wildlife at all four venues (Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum, Dunfermline Carnegie Library and Galleries, Abbey Church of Dunfermline, and Dunfermline Abbey Nave) using the HQExplorer PAST-PORT, a booklet that takes families around the venues and in which they can collect stamps when they complete an activity. Once all 4 stamps have been collected, families can earn a special certificate, and for this summer only - a special Heritage Quarter badge, thanks to funding from Carnegie Dunfermline Trust!

Families can take part during the one day or over several days or over the course of the whole holidays. And if families have been bitten by the safari bug they can then go and see what wildlife they can spot in Pittencrieff Park (apart from squirrels!)

Summer Safari PAST-PORTS are FREE and can be picked up, along with Safari Spotter Activity sheets at any of the four venues (check each venue for opening times and hours which vary and pre booking may be required). Families are welcome to bring binoculars - or could make their own from cardboard tubes.

The HQExplorer PAST-PORT is a learning partnership between the visitor attractions in Dunfermline’s Heritage Quarter which aims to collaborate to provide fun experiences for families and increase engagement with heritage.
