Not huge exhibition space, but ok for a half hour visit.

Not very excited by the reviews, but went for a look on a cold Saturday to pass a little time and keep a 3 year old happy. The foyer is huge in proportion to the exhibition space... read more

Other than the small exhibit about sweets which occupied a space in front of me (which was interesting) there really wasn’t anything else. He explained there was a reference... More

this was a look back over a century or so. It brings back memories of childhood, it also is very educational about the past history of the surrounding area, the steel works, mining, sweet making. It has plenty to see and interact with. A good day out for the family for free.

Not very excited by the reviews, but went for a look on a cold Saturday to pass a little time and keep a 3 year old happy.

My family used to love this place and were frequent visitors because of the fantastic facilities for everyone and the interesting objects on exhibition for all tastes. Took my niece recently what a disappointment nothing to do or see and very few exhibits what happened you took away a great day out from Motherwell what were you thinking ?
