This holiday weekend will see Motherwell Heritage Centre give a last hurrah to its Technopolis exhibition.

The award-winning exhibition was opened as part of the centre in November 1996.

It tells the story of the local area from the Romans, through the rise and fall of the industrial era, to present-day Motherwell.

However, next week it will close to make way for a new archives and modern records facility.

To mark the exhibition’s last days, the heritage centre will be putting on hourly tours from tomorrow (Friday) until Monday.

Tours take place from 11am to 4pm each day, except on Sunday when they start at 1pm.

In addition to the Technopolis tours there will be kiddie’s rides, giant games, crafts and face-painting and on Saturday afternoon animal handling with Zoo Lab, the RSPB and the Rangers service.

Admission is free to the centre, but children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
