I visited the museum today, and whilst part of the museum is closed off for refurbishment, what is available gives you a good insight into the Hamilton area and the formation of the Cameronians.

What a wonderful place to visit. It is surprising just how little you know about a place on your doorstep. Great place to take the kids for a very interesting day out. There is an excellent tearoom within the premises.
