Summerlee Heritage Park
The Summerlee Heritage park is a museum of social and Industrial history.
"The aim of the Museum is to preserve and interpret the history of the local Iron, Steel, Coal and engineering industries and of the communities that depended on them for a living"
Monday - Sunday 10am - 5pm (4pm November - March)
As the history of the Monklands is inextricably linked with the Industrial Revolution, it was deemed appropriate that the heart of Coatbridge, "The Iron Burgh" should be the site of Scotland's most exciting museum project. Summerlee Heritage Trust is a major museum on a once derelict 25-acre site on the banks of the Monkland Canal, centred on the archaeological excavations of the Summerlee Iron Works.
The park is designed around
the archaeological remains of the Summerlee Ironworks which emerged from
under six metres of slag and industrial waste.
