Situated in Coatbridge, an important centre within Scotland’s ‘industrial heartland’, Summerlee museum of Scottish Industrial Life is built on the site of the old Summerlee Ironworks, and incorporated the main workshop of the former Hydrocon Crane Factory.

Summerlee Industrial Museum Summerlee was one of Scotland’s most important ironworks. Opened in 1836, it closed in 1926. The remains of its blast furnaces and other structures can be seen from the view pod and parapet at the north-east side of the main exhibition hall.

 

The museum makes a great family day out and has Scotland’s only operational heritage tramway, as well as a recreated mine with guided tours, miner’s cottage, an exhibition hall with working machinery, a play park, a café and a shop.
