Mausoleum Tours

Mausoleum Tours

Hamilton Mausoleum is the town’s most striking historic landmark. This fascinating monument was built by Alexander, 10th Duke of Hamilton, as his final resting place. The building is impressive on the outside, but, book one of the tours offered by Museum staff, and you will see just how breath-taking it is, with its massive dome, magnificent bronze doors, marble floors, and eerily atmospheric crypt – to say nothing of the world famous echo!

Tours are available on the first and third Sunday of each month from February to November at 12.00pm and 2.00pm. Tours must be booked at least 2 days in advance.

Tickets for the 12.00pm tour cost £6.50 and £4.20 for concessions available from Low Parks Museum reception. Present your ticket at the Mezzanine Cafe at Low Parks Museum for a complimentary bowl of soup or a hot drink and a cake.
