Johnstone - Johnstone History Museum
Johnstone History Museum deals with the history of the burgh of Johnstone, particularly the industrial heritage of the town. Displays include photographs, maps and objects related to various well-known industries including Patons shoelace factory, as well as some lesser-known ones such as the mousetrap factory!
Our museum will be open on Saturday 2nd of September with volunteer staff to facilitate visits, guide visitors and answer questions about the Museum, its displays or the history of Johnstone.
Johnstone History Museum is situated in an area specially provided by Morrisons supermarket, and is believed to be the first such museum inside a supermarket in Britain. The displays cover areas of interest to local residents and to visitors from further afield who are looking to research the history of their ancestors.
