Something for everyone here, from the border reivers to old school exhibits. Nice to see the local bikers celebrated in the galleries and the setting within the park is lovely.
Exhibits from old schools, household equipment of yesteryear, Steve Hislop & Jimmy Guthrie rooms and many fine paintings. There is always an exhibition of some kind in the Scott Gallery.
Whilst staying at Hawick, we decided to investigate this small, local Museum, and what a pleasant surprise it was. Set in the middle of Hawick park, it has some really interesting objects, especially the galleries celebrating Jimmy Guthrie and Steve Hislop, both of interest to all bikers!

If you're interest is Border history, the Reivers or the industrial revolution from the prespective of those who lived and breathed it then there's nowhere better within the entire south of Scotland to discover it than here.

A strange mix of exhibits in an attractive house. If you are not interested in motorcycling it'll fill up a spare half hour. There are pictures upstairs, but no wheelchair access above the ground floor. Advertised as a "window on the world" - a victim of over-enthusiastic publicity?
worth visit the museum all what you want to know about hawick borders lots of info.photos.art.culture.etc etc if you like to see all what is inside museums probably you need 2/3 hours depends on your interest in all that is exposed
