Low Parks Museum
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.
