The John Hastie Story

John Hastie was born in Strathaven in 1828 and became a successful local businessman who owned a licensed grocery at The Cross in Strathaven.

Before he died in 1889, he provided funds for the building of a museum for the inhabitants of the town. John Hastie himself had a collection of 'antiquities' and some of them can be seen on display in the museum.

The museum also has temporary exhibitions and activities.

Admission to the museum is free.
