Visited this museum and was very impressed with the information given. The museum has some amazing artifacts. We walked the Poet's Path about 10 minutes walk to Burn's cottage then onwards to the Auld Kirk, Burns Monument then Brig o Doon. A very interesting trail. We went back to the museum for tea and very tasty scones the tea rooms are very spacious. Poets Path is very flat good for wheelchairs/buggies. The monument and Brig o Doon bridge could also be reached using the road next to the hotel for wheelchairs and buggies. The Burns Monument has lovely gardens but stairs to get out to the Brig o Doon. A very interesting visit would highly recommend!!

Visited but house and museum were shut due to COVID however we walked around the grounds, bridge and Kirk which were lovely and free. The cafe was open but we could not access it as we had the dog. There is plenty of parking which is free.

Hi You must have tried to visit us on a Tuesday or Wednesday which are days we are currently closed. Our current operating hours are Thursday to Monday 10am to 4.30pm. Last entry to the Museum and Cottage and last orders in the cafe is 4pm. Our cafe is only opening during Museum operating hours so I am unsure of the cafe you refer to as open. Dogs are very welcome in the grounds including the garden outside the cafe which you can access through the Museum foyer. Our “dog gate” is currently closed to allow us to monitor visitor numbers on site but please ask at reception and you will be shown where you can take your dogs. We are hoping to get back to 7 day opening soon so keep an eye on the NTS website our Facebook and check times before travelling. Thank you
