I traveled with my family to Scotland to see where our ancestors live and our guide took us to the Robert burns museum and grounds and it was very. Anyone that is a fan of Robert Burns will feel at peace here and make sure you read the sayings scattered throughout the area on the ground.

This was a very impressive musuem considering it was only about a minor Scottish poet. They clearly love him even though nost would not be able to undertand a word that he wrote. Very detailed and visually impressive.

There is a new Visitors Center at the Robbie Burns birthplace that is really outstanding. You can walk through the many exhibits, get some lunch, shop in the extensive gift shop. The grounds are beautiful - and there is a free shuttle service to the homestead where Burns was born. I think this was a first class experience - especially... More

Much more to see than we thought, there is the museum, the monument which you can go up and look out from, the Brig O Doon (bridge over river), the old church and 10mins walk to the cottage (buggy ride every 15 mins), worth a visit.

I visited here during my stay in Ayr. As with Culzean, it was a bit of a nostalgia trip as this was a place we visited on a school trip. In those days it was only Burn's cottage and a shop. How lovely to see a whole museum dedicated to Burns. Each site ie Burn's Cottage, the auld kirk (where... More

Went here with adegree of trepidation~how would a sassenach like me cope with scottish culture? well i enjoyed it. it was a nice wee house where Burns lived. The actual museum was even better~well explained and possible for me to appreciate his life and poetry.i would recommend a visit if you are in the vicinity of this wee beastie.
