Borders Textile Towerhouse
Description
Borders Textile Towerhouse lets visitors discover the knitwear and tweed story, how the Borders woollen industries reached the height of luxury and fashion.
You will see garments, fabrics, objects, photographs and art, revealing over 200 years of tradition and innovation in the Borders Industry.
We are a lively, hands-on venue, suitable for all ages. Changing exhibitions bring in contemporary fashion and design - and watch out for our textile events and workshops throughout the year.
In the Tom Scott Room you can view paintings by this noted Scottish watercolourist, and enjoy touchscreen access to the Museum's collection of his work.
You will also discover the fascinating history of this 500 year old tower from the days of the Border Reivers. The Registrar of Genealogy can help with your family history research.
