Low Parks Museum
Low Parks Museum
129 Muir Street
Low Parks Museum is housed in beautiful and historically significant buildings which were once part of the Duke of Hamiton's estate. The 18th century Assembly Room, with its original plasterwork and musician's gallery, forms a striking centrepiece to the buildings. Displays tell the story of the communities of South Lanarkshire and how they were shaped by the development of industry and housing. There is also a display on the history of The Cameronians (Scottish Rifles)regiment, which was raised in South Lanarkshire and, until its disbandment in 1968, held a proud place as Scotland's only rifle regiment. Two large galleries also house a changing programme of temporary exhibitions, ensuring that there is always something new to see.

Wild Wood Festival
- 16 May 2014 7-9pm
If you go down to the woods today... This festival celebrates the sights and sounds of the forest with a host of unusual, hands-on events that will excite the imagination of children and adults alike. Discover the wonders of wood with informal guided walks and talks, and find out what a little creativity can achieve in turning wood into a habitat or something quite different...For those who love the smell, feel and look of natural materials, there will be demonstrations from our talented team of furniture makers, woodturners and willow weavers, and storytellers will spin magical tales of woods and wildlife. And for the more mature family members, there's the opportunity to gather around one of Tim Stead’s impressive, larger-than-life sculptural chairs and enjoy a fascinating evening of music, refreshments and tall tales.
