Went here with the kids a couple of days ago and a good war them going on. Kids got to dress up in the old war clothes and we had fun looking at the memorabilia, however their was also an photographers exhibition which was just useless and taking up space. Has a good cafe upstairs. another annoying thing was that... More

The grand kids enjoyed dressing up in the soldiers uniforms and the fire engine, not enough history of the local area. But still worth a visit. They also have a nice coffee shop. No entry cost just donations only.

Great place, steeped in history. Find out about old Hamilton, the palace and palace grounds. Great for youngsters learning. Follow it up with a walk to the mausoleum.

A good local museum that has some lego and a miners tunnel for the kids to go through. A reasonable cafe. We frequently go here to let the kids learn about the local history such as miners and military group.
