I had only thought there was the Birthplace Museum, but there was plenty else to see and do here. When we went to the ticket office, the man on duty took time to explain all the areas we could visit, pointing them out on the map. The birthplace itself was most interesting in the family rooms. The quotes on the... More

I'm glad we were national trust members, I'm not sure it was worth £8 each... Interesting exhibition and the usual gift shop and cafe.

We stopped for lunch at the Café and it was staffed by very helpful waitresses and we were fed but it was a café not a restaurant and so what you got was more quickly prepared but was satisfying. The Café is situated next to the shop and the outside space is very relaxing and the inside of the café... More

The contents were amazing. Such personal artifacts belonging to Burns. A lock of his hair, his writing desk and chair, etc all gave a sense of... More

We visited this attraction during the school holidays, having recently joined the National Trust. We were greeted by friendly and helpful staff. We first took a tour around the modern museum, which our kids loved - they could interact with many of the exhibits and loved listening to Burns Poems on the 'telephones'. We took the buggy ride to Burns... More
