Tell us your museum, town hall and library memories…

Friday 7th September, 2018

Some of Paisley’s best-loved buildings are being transformed – and we want you to tell us what they mean to you.

Paisley Museum and Coats Observatory will reopen in 2022 after a £42m transformation into an international-class destination telling the area’s unique stories.

Paisley Town Hall is being turned into a flagship entertainment venue which will stay at the heart of local life for generations to come.

And a new modern Learning and Cultural Hub is being built at the heart of the High Street, which will become the new home of Paisley Central Library.

We know these buildings will mean so much to so many, and people will have their own stories to tell – whether it was the first time you met Buddy the Lion, or seeing St Mirren parade a trophy on the town hall balcony.

We’d love to hear them – so tell us below what your favourite museum, town hall or library memory is…and why you think the building matters. We will publish the best.

I have visited the Museum for many years ... it is full of unique and inspiring objects that not only give great pleasure but educate and nourish the soul.
