Summerlee Museum of Scottish Industrial Life
This museum showcases the history of Scotland's industrial heritage and is located a 2 mile walk from the north end of the canal
Discover the story of Lanarkshire's industrial heritage, explore the expansive outdoor space, and enjoy the adventure play park. Ride on Scotland's only working heritage tramway and immerse yourself in the fascinating exhibits.
And don't forget the mine tour! Summerlee has re-constructed a traditional 'Miners Row' which shows off the domestic conditions of the mining family from the 1840's to the 1980's. Just by the cottages is the Summerlee Coal Company pithead site, complete with recreated addit mine that shows off the cramped and damp conditions in which the miners worked.
