Development of Motherwell Heritage Centre
Motherwell Heritage Centre
Since the establishment of the Museum and Heritage Service in 1986 the acquisition policy for the former Motherwell District was based on acquiring objects and material relating to al aspects of the history of Motherwell and its surrounding area. Particular emphasis was placed on the social, political and industrial history of the period from 1850 to the present day.
Motherwell Heritage Centre enables the history of the district to be preserved for future generations at the same time as promoting the heritage of the area to both the local community and to visitors.
The centre was opened in November 1996 and by emphasising the importance and unique identity of Motherwell and district it creates a focus for community pride and provides a springboard for community-based museum activities.
