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.

Interesting museum to visit with local history of the area. Good displays and cafe area to relax. Displays do change and various activities take place during the year. Well worth a visit check to see if any special events are taking place before going they are well worth going to.

This has lots of items relating to the local area & industry. It also contains items regarding the Scottish military. It is worth a visit if you're in the area & it is free to enter. Win, win.

Lovely small museum with cafe overlooking some of the exhibits. Lunch , soup and sandwiches, etc. very good. Nice atmosphere staff friendly and helpful. The history of Hamilton very interesting. Good for a morning or afternoon visit. Car park free. You can also have lunch without paying to visit museum.
