Summerlee welcomes you to its 20 acre site with free parking, free admission and all-weather facilities. It all adds up to a belter of a family day out!
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 received a £10 million redevelopment in 2008, and today the museum is a modern and thriving visitor attraction. Rated a four star attraction by Visit Scotland, it’s the perfect setting for an unforgettable family day out.
