Fantastic fun for younger kids, a brilliant museum and lots to see and do outside. A lovely cafe all socially distanced and hand sanitizers everywhere. The only downside is with the current slot system in operation we didn’t actually get an opportunity to see the park and everything there was to see as they close at lunchtime to clean for the afternoon’s visitors. However a good day out and hopefully will get back again soon!

Good day out for all ages tucked away in the heart of 'sunny' coatbridge. Interesting exhibits and lots to see and do within the site. Get an insight into what life was like in and around Monklands when the iron and steelworks were at the forefront of daily life.

Great place. Lots for all the family to do and learn. The old houses throughout the decades brought back lots of memories. The site is of great historical interest. Lots of interactive things for the kids. The grandkids loved the trip on the tram. Cafe really nice and very reasonable priced also lots of picnic areas if you prefer to take your own snacks. Well worth a visit.
