“Well worth a visit - Steve Hislop area for bikers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

and so much more ... The museum features great displays on local history and industry and caters for all ages. The gardens and war memorials are definitely worth seeing as well as the Jimmy Guthrie, Steve Hislop and Bill McLaren statues/busts. The park surrounding the museum is a firm favourite for dog walkers and walkers in general. Heritage lottery funding has been allocated to create a new bandstand, coffee shop and pedestrian bridge - these will all be a great asset to an all ready superb park.

“nice but boring”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

i enjoy the odd stroll and the nice relaxing sandwhich and a brew in relaxed environments, the only bad thing was parent tend to forget those little sods they made need watching 24/7 and jumping all over while they do nothing should not be left to staff to discipline kinds

A lovely museum w/the history of cashmere in Hawick. It's fun to see the things created throughout the generations in Hawick. The gift shop offers lovely, locally made gifts.

“Great wee museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

This was a brilliant visit. The museum has something interesting for everyone. i am not a motorbike fan but the exhibits on the two local cyclists were superb. Sir Walter Elliots study was fascinating too. The art gallery was good and the staff were friendly and informative.An enjoyable visit and one of the few places open in February. Entry is free with a request for a donation for the upkeep of the museum.
Nice walks and gardens surround the museum.

“Wool and motor bikes.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

A strange mix of exhibits in an attractive house. If you are not interested in motorcycling it'll fill up a spare half hour. There are pictures upstairs, but no wheelchair access above the ground floor. Advertised as a "window on the world" - a victim of over-enthusiastic publicity?
