We visited on a very wet day so although we could see the grounds and gardens looked stunning we kept indoors! The museum is light and airy and very comfortable to spend time in. 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

We were passing the main museum on a circular walk so called in to the fabulous café. We visited the Burns cottage and the interesting places in between - the gardens, monuments and Brig O' Doon. Its worth being a member of The Scottish National Trust, or the English National Trust to gain entry to the sites.

This could have been so much better, but the main museum was dark to the extent where even sighted people would struggle to read the signage. The signage was difficult to read because of the use of small text and the colour of the text on the background. Although we were able to use a wheelchair in the museum it... More
