Hawick Museum and The Scott Art Gallery

Discover a town's treasure in an historic house set in beautiful parkland.

Discover a town's treasure in an historic house set in beautiful parkland. This 18th century mansion became home to the town's museum in 1910 - the oldest museum in the Scottish Borders. The objects and fine works of art collected are not just about Hawick, but are a window on the world. The Jimmie Guthrie and Steve Hislop exhibitions showcase the lives and achievements of Hawick's two tragic motorcycle champions, making the museum a magnet for motorcyclists. The museum, sited next to Hawick's impressive war memorial, houses the town's hand-painted Rolls of Honour for those who lost their lives in the two world wars.  The newly-refurbished War Memorial Room tells the story of Hawick's people in Britain's wars, with a fascinating collection of military memorabilia and wartime souvenirs on display. Families will enjoy the Old Schoolroom and Park Gallery with their hands-on activities. There's always something new to see with a lively programme of changing museum, art and craft exhibitions throughout the year, with accompanying activities. We host a programme of fun and educational workshops. Group tours and visits can be organised on request.Take a look at our Museums & Galleries Guide to see what's on here and at our other venues throughout the Scottish Borders.
