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

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...
