A town's treasures. Discover racing legends, passionate collectors and famous painters in a museum set in a beautiful Victorian park.
- Glittering trophies from two racing legends – One of the Borders’ finest art collections – A rich programme of temporary exhibitions
Hawick Museum and Gallery reveals the lives of Hawick’s people through the objects they loved, used every day, and brought back from far-away places. You can also explore the exciting careers of two local lads who found world fame as motorcycle champions: Jimmie Guthrie and Steve Hislop. In a room overlooking Hawick’s unique Art Deco war memorial, an impressive Roll of Honour commemorates townsmen who fell in the two World Wars.
Three galleries house temporary exhibitions, so there’s always something new to see. A lively programme of schools events includes ‘lessons’ in a period schoolroom and quizzes for children.
The museum is set in a beautiful Victorian park, a real hidden jewel of the Borders, with crazy golf and a café on the doorstep.
Hawick Museum is open all year, except between Christmas and New Year. Admission is free. The museum shop sells cards, books and gifts, and there is a café in the park from Easter to October.
