Robert Burns Birthplace Museum

Robert Burns Birthplace Museum offers a truly unique encounter with Scotland’s favourite son.

The museum comprises the Burns Cottage, historic landmarks where he set his greatest work, the monument and gardens created in his honour and a modern museum housing the world’s most important collection of his life and works.

The Ayrshire ploughman, who rose from humble beginnings to become one of the world’s best known poets, Robert Burns has become an international icon. His national pride, fierce egalitarianism, and quick wit have become synonymous with the Scottish character itself. Yet who was the real Robert Burns? By tracing his footsteps from birth to international superstardom, the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, from the Burns museum itself to Burns Cottage to Brig o’ Doon to Burns Monument, offers you the best opportunity to discover the complex and passionate man behind the icon.
