MuseumHawick Museum
DescriptionHawick Museum's parkland location and fascinating displays reflect the endeavour of the town and its people. The objects and fine works of art collected are not just about Hawick but a window on the world.
The permanent displays allow many of our wonderful artefacts to be shown. The Jimmie Guthrie and Steve Hislop exhibitions make us a motorcyclists' Mecca.
Nature displays and bygones of domestic life add variety, while four changing spaces, including the Scott Art Gallery, allow a lively series of art and museum exhibitions throughout the year.
The museum also houses the town's hand-painted war memorial inscriptions. Hawick Museum was founded in 1856 and has been in its present home, Wilton Lodge, since 1911.
Wilton Lodge is an 18th century mansion house, enlarged in the Victorian era then thoughtfully redesigned as the town's museum by Hawick Town Council after they purchased the building along with its surrounding grounds, now Wilton Lodge Park.
