We went on a wet Monday and it certainly filled a few hours. From the history of miming in the area to the story of the Cameronians there is much to learn for all ages. Very interactive for children as they get to crawl through a mining tunnel, groom a Clydesdale horse's tail and try on military uniforms. Not a... More

My friend and I visited the exhibition "Pits, Ponies, People and Stories. As the grand-daughter of a miner, I was very interested in this exhibition. There are videos of former miners giving their experiences of being down the mine, and of living conditions in the miners rows The history of the mining industry is displayed, giving dates of when the...

Visited along with Grand Children would enjoyed learning about local history. They enjoyed dressing up in various costumes . Also enjoyed the Cameronians Regimental Museum that is housed in the building.

An interesting museum in 2 historic buildings. There is a programme of special exhibitions. The cafe provides a selection of simple food at reasonable prices, and there is also a good shop. Have a look at the elegant Adam-style Assembly Room.

my three boys loved dressing up as soldiers and admiring the old weapons, then going down the "coal mine" tunnel and hearing how the miners coped in those conditions. They enjoyed the farmiong stories and the clydesdale horse, then finally the delicious lunch in the cafe with tasty home cooked food and baking - lovely!

This museum has an exhibition about pits, ponies, and people. This is about the coal mines in the surrounding district of Lanarkshire. It is well worth a visit and there is a wealth of information. My elderly father could reminisce about past times. It is free entry and very enjoyable. The cafeteria is good and reasonable prices. My only thought... More

Have lived in Hamilton for over 25 years but have never properly explored what is now the museum until now. It was a lot better than expected and covered plenty areas of the areas past with plenty artefacts on show also. Great way to spend a quiet weekend for a couple of hours. Unfortunately went when the temporary exhibition was... More
