Couldnt believe I didnt know about this Museum right on my doorstep! Very impressive layout and jam packed with intriguing stories of a bygone age. Spent a very enjoyable couple of hours wondering round and discovering so much more than I could have imagined about my local areas history. Brilliant. First class!

Full of local historical interest. They usually have themed events, so look out for them. The cafe is super, with great food and friendly staff, very helpful. Nice shop too, also if you get the opportunity, in fact you must visit the Mausoleum, no visit to Hamilton would be complete without a visit there. Well worth visiting

Well worth spending a couple of hours here. They also have a changing temporary exhibition space. Both young and old will enjoy a visit. there is a nice cafe and very friendly staff. Also it's worth going on one of their guided tours to the Mausoleum if you have time.

Now it contains a well thought and beautifully maintained collection, the staff are friendly and helpful and the cafe one of the nicest in town. A good section of the history of the... More
