We go here every Sunday for our cup of tea and one of Rebecca's fresh scones (the cream ones are gorgeous). Nice staff.
An excellent all round facility for those who want to know about Burns, his life and his works. There is easy access with a pleasant stroll from the actual birthplace to the Centre. Well worth a visit for Burnsians and non-Burnsians alike.
So many interactive displays for all members of the family. Great interpretation with several humorous items.Definitely spend a good hour in the Museum and a visit wouldn't be complete without at least having a scone in the attractively laid out restaurant. Then there is the short walk to the Cottage.

This is worth visiting. A modern exhibition attracting all ages. It's not just for Burns folk, but for all interested in social history. Other Burns attractions are close by; Burns cottage, Brig o Doon, Alloway Old Kirk. Hard not to be moved by the inscription on the back of Burns' father's grave. Enjoy Rozelle Country Park too, with an avenue... More

Having spent some time learning a lot about Burns I didn't already know, we enjoyed a good cup of coffee in the lovely cafe and then walked to Burns Cottage via Poets' Path... More
