Low Parks Museum

[Low Parks Museum]

Housed in a couple of historic buildings on the outskirts of Hamilton, the Low Parks Museum is South Lanarkshire's flagship museum and an impressive exhibition space. The venue traces the history both of Hamilton town and the wider county, with a prominent focus on the Dukes of Hamilton - who built the resplendent Hamilton Palace very nearby in 1695 (sadly demolished in 1927 after mining subsidence) - and on the local Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) regiment. Admittedly South Lanarkshire isn't a very fashionable area for tourists to visit, but the region's diversity of landscapes and juxtaposition of urban, rural and industrial parts results in a particularly varied set of displays. Tours of nearby Hamilton Mausoleum also start here - see our separate page for more info.
