I first visited this museum around 1953 in my childhood. Some of the exhibits I remember are still there. The curator David Hill was most helpful. The exhibits reflect the locality. Enhoy a walk in the parkland, walled garden and the museum

Expected much more information about the Borders and the Reiver in particular. There wasn't anything about this. There was some information about knitting, and those killed in action in wartime. Most of this would probably be of more interest to locals than visitors. Unless you are interested in this limited range of topics go elsewhere.
We learned afterwards, at the Armstrong Museum in Langham, that we should have followed the Reivers Trail. You have to park your car outside the grounds and walk almost a mile along a driveway to reach the museum.

What a little gem this museum is! I especially liked the section focusing on knitwear in the Borders and the exhibit featuring the clothing.
Great way to spend an hour or two if you're in Hawick and learn about what the Borders towns are all about.
