Margaret Mitchell MSP was delighted to be shown around Low Parks Museum in Hamilton by Aileen Meechan from the museum.

There was so much to see but it was particularly timely to visit when the ‘Lanarkshire’s War’ exhibition was on, running up until Sunday 12th November.

Commenting Central Scotland and Scottish Conservative MSP Margaret Mitchell said:

“I found the tour of the museum absolutely fascinating steeped as it is in local history.

“It was intriguing to see the photos of Hamilton over 100 years ago and of the Palace and museum as a private dwelling.

“The detailed content of artefacts displayed in the museum is superb and well worth a visit.

“The current ‘Lanarkshire’s War’ exhibition is particularly relevant given the recent commemorations in Belgium surrounding the Third Battle of Ypres.

“It is hard to believe that it has been 50 years since Low Parks Museum opened its doors back in November 1967.

“The activities and events planned to celebrate their Golden Year include Bronze Age Live! and an Autumn Equinox Adventure.

“I would without hesitation thoroughly recommend a visit as people of all ages will get something from it.”
