Our tower is a distinctive feature of the local landscape and offers visitors a viewing platform right up and down the Clyde Valley, over to the Campsie Fells and even to Ben Lomond, if the weather permits!
Visitors who wish to research their local or family history can do so in our friendly local history room on the first floor. Here all are welcome to explore North Lanarkshire’s extensive historical archives collections which span from the 15th century to the present day and include poor relief records and cemetery day books. The Local History department also holds a wide range of resources covering the areas of Motherwell, Bellshill, Shotts and Wishaw (Old Motherwell District) and offers one-to-one advice and guidance on researching your family tree. You can access the museum collections which relate to Motherwell and the surrounding area and which are located within the museum store.
There is a small shop selling a range of books, DVDs and postcards on the local area as well as pocket money toys and sweets. Copies of photographs of old North Lanarkshire can be purchased from our Archives and Local History departments.
