John McDouall Stuart Museum, Dysart

The John McDouall Stuart Museum celebrates the life of the Dysart-born explorer who was the first European explorer to walk the length of Australia, in 1862, from south to north. The museum describes his journeys, the Australian wilderness and the Aborigines. The museum is run as an out-station of Kirkcaldy Museum and Art Gallery, and is located in the house in which the explorer was born, in Rectory Lane, now owned by the National Trust for Scotland.
