Located next to the river. This small museum has clothing of the Bard, and other artefacts. A restaurant was next door to it -food was good The uniform jacket was of great interest to me, fantastic.

We were on a week long tour of Edinburgh and Scotland with a large group of American women (88, I believe) with the DAR. The museum curator, provost of the town, and others at the Centre visited with us. They were so gracious, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We took a lot of pictures, and enjoyed the history of our shared... More

Lots of information on Robert Burns and his life in Dumfries. Worth visiting even if your knowledge of Burns doesn't extend much beyond "Auld Lang Syne". If you can only find time for one of the Burns related sites in Dumfries suggest this one.

Used the Centre last night for a meal and a night at the pictures. The meal in Hullabaloo was very good and we loved the cinema in the Burns Centre. It holds 69 people and at £6.90 each to get in its a wee bit cheaper than The Odeon. I must congratulate the staff in both places, very pleasant and... More

Dumfries has gone all out on "Robert Burns". There is his house also free to enter & is probably the best kept & preserved and displayed house. The RB centre is all very interesting & well worth a visit.

The café is great. Good choice of food for the size of the facility and large windows opening on to the gardens make for a much better than usual eating experience at a tourist attraction. Helpful staff.

Staff helpful enough and there are a few interesting exhibits to see. However I would suggest this needs somebody to go in and give it a bit of a revamp. It didn't catch the essence of Burns for me as it was a bit formal. All right for a freebie
