This museum is brilliant, and one of the hidden gems of Hamilton (shame it's not more central). Interesting exhibition about social history of Hamilton and when I was there they had a fun exhibition on lego which is good for kids.

Low Parks museum is a wonderful and interesting place to learn about Hamilton's history. It houses the Caledonian regiment artefacts and has a great atmosphere for the kids as well as the older visitors. Try to see the Mausoleum as well, it's just a five minute walk from the Low Parks car park.

i have visited the museum several times because it is in my home town and I'm very interested in the towns history, the museum can be boring for children and point but on the whole is very family friendly. the lego section was a rip off though.
