Motherwell Heritage Centre , Motherwell
Motherwell Heritage Centre opened is 1996 and is a Scottish Tourist Board '4-Star' graded visitor attraction. The Centre contains different exhibitions that are designed to take you on a journey through Motherwell's history. Beginning in roman times up to the nineteenth century, detailing Motherwell's expansion through the 1920s and 30s, how it was affected by both World Wars, events of the 1950s and 60s, and also includes the demolition of Ravenscraig steelworks.
The main feature of the Centre is a 'Technopolis' multi-media display on the heritage of the area from the days of the Romans, through the rise and fall of local heavy industries to the era of present day Motherwell.
The heyday of the traditional industries such as mining, railways and steel production are brought to life through foundry and street scenes, glimpses of domestic life, talking figures and 'hands on' interactive technology.
A great day out for all the family.
