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.

It was okay, pretty boring though and not much to do. All in all a very interesting place but not my cup of tea

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.

The place was very busy and noisy with a lot of children, as you might expect. I don't think the inner walls of the museum... More
