Hawick Museum is open for the season. Pre-booking tickets in advance is essential.
Discover a town’s treasures in an historic house set in a beautiful park.
This 18th century mansion became home to the town’s museum in 1910. It is the oldest museum in the Scottish Borders and a VisitScotland 4 star attraction.
The objects and fine works of art collected are not just about Hawick but are a window on the world with displays about Ancient Egypt, Nature and local bygones. The War Room tells the story of Hawick’s people in Britain’s wars.
The Jimmie Guthrie and Steve Hislop exhibitions showcase the lives and achievements of Hawick’s two tragic motorbike champions, making the museum a magnet for motorcyclists.
Enjoy a display of ‘The Art Collection’ in the Scott Gallery with works by 19th and 20th century Scottish artists such as Peter Howson, Elizabeth Blackadder, Alberto Morrocco, Tom Scott, Horatio McCulloch and many more.
See paintings by local artist Colin Philip in his exhibition ‘Umbra’. Catch a glimpse of the town over two centuries in ‘Pictures of Hawick and her People’.
There’s always something new to see with a lively programme of changing museum and art exhibitions.
