A nice little place to visit. I had 2 toddlers with me and they enjoyed it just as much as I did. There was plenty to see and there were some good activities for the kids such as, dressing up and crawling through mine shafts with hard-hats on....great stuff. Didn't try the cafe but it looked nice. Gift shop had... More

Overall the museum is very good. It tells the story of the local area from earliest times, holds Cameronian exhibits & currently has an exhibition Pits Ponies People etc. Quite a few things for kids to try. I discovered things I didn't know before, e.g. demise of original Hamilton Palace & how little remains of their possessions. I heard that... More

I had a walk around part of the museum and the Cameronian Exhibition caught my eye. I learned a lot of the history of the Cameronians going back over the years. It was good they had soldiers' uniforms that kids could have fun trying on. Staff were helpful and explained the model outside the entrance was actually a clock which... More

Low Parks Museum in Hamilton must be high on my list of places to visit on a regular basis. There's always something different on. The exhibitions are amazing and so is the food, the sandwiches are enormous so make sure you're hungry. Visit soon, you won't be disappointed.

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...
