Visited on a "dreich" Sunday morning - dull and wet but every member of staff was cheery and welcoming. The cafe uses plastic cutlery and paper plates but the baked potato I had was massive and overflowing with beans - very good value. The main exhibition hall is massive with lots of industrial exhibits mainly of local interest so plenty of shelter if it's raining. Larger items are outside including a tramway with a short ride. This is the only item you pay for. The driver was very chatty and gave
a lot of information.

Good day out for families and it’s free, had to book time slot due to COVID.
There is plenty to see and do around the site, some areas were unfortunately closed again due to COVID restrictions. There is a tram which takes you on a short trip around the site, small fee for this.
Plenty of parking and a tearoom on site, didn’t use it though as it was quite busy. Something for all ages to enjoy.

Great experience. Interesting glimpses of past lives. Very detailed and informative. Very well presented. Only one small quibble. The cafe is good, but the scones were pre packaged and sourced from a firm in Kent. Surely, even under the present circumstances or especially because of the circumstances, locally baked scones could be provided?

Such a fantastic place to visit! Lots to see and do. Unfortunately lots of the interactive attractions are closed at the moment due to covid but hopefully they will re-open soon!

Without doubt, the tram driver made our visit.
Rather than just drive the tram, he spent time speaking with all the passengers and telling the story of the tram - as well as answering all the many questions the passengers had.
Very well kept grounds and really enjoyed the walk around!
Thanks tram!!

Summerlee museum is a great attraction full of history. It has expansive grounds with period cottages decorated throughout the ages. There is also a small sweetie shop on site selling traditional sweets. You can catch an old fashioned Glasgow tram for a short ride around the grounds. The inside exhibition is full of industrial machinery from the past along with items from the 40's through to the 70's. There is a modern cafe on site. There is no entrance fee but you need to book due to the current covid regulations.

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!

An old favourite that we revisited. Very safe in strange times and has adapted well. The tram and the old houses appealed very much to our grandson. Lovely staff
