Attraction Information

Summerlee is set in 22 acres based around the site of the nineteenth century Summerlee Ironwork. There's lots of scope for secret schooling if you want to bone up on the place before you go, but lots of fun to be had discovering it together too!

The museum has many attractions for all the family including Scotland's only electric tramway, sympathetically recreated mine and miners' cottages, cool adventure playpark and lots lots more. There is also a less physical play area, complete with dressing up box so they can become a period housewife or miner for a bit, if they like!

Summerlee operates an electric tramway on over half a kilometre of track. Several nice shiny trams are operational on a daily basis including one from Austria and one from Belgium, and they have all been lovingly restored for you.
