North Lanarkshire Heritage Centre

Back to attractions Enjoy a visit to Motherwell Heritage Centre, Lanarkshire Ban the bottle..!


Formerly Motherwell Heritage Centre, this stunning contemporary buiding is the new home for all North Lanarkshire's archives.  All are welcome and guidance is available to first-time researchers of family histories or local studies.
 

Documents ranging from the 15th to 21st centuries are all contained in one easily-searchable facility.  There is a whole room dedicated to family history research, in addition to the existing local studies room with its extensive reference library, photography archive and local newspaper database

A photocopying service is available, which includes maps of old boundaries and mine-workings, essential for modern-day planning enquiries and applications.  For current fees, please contact the centre.

There is a great exhibition area, with a year-round programme of displays highlighting the area's heritage, as well as contemporary art and crafts.

The centre's fifth-floor viewing platform gives an outstanding view up and down the Clyde Valley, from Tinto Hill in the south, to Ben Lomond in the north.

There is also a small shop selling a range of books on local heritage, cards, traditional toys and sweets.

During school holidays the centre lays on a selection of craft activities and events for children.  Check out the 'events' page of this website for details, or call the centre direct on (01698) 274590.
