Robert Burns Birthplace Museum offers a truly unique encounter with Scotland’s favourite son. Set among four hectares of the poet’s cherished Alloway countryside, the Museum comprises the atmospheric cottage where the poet was born, the historic landmarks where he set his greatest work, the elegant monument and gardens created in his honour, and a modern museum housing the world’s most important collection of his life and works. Robert Burns has become an international icon – the Ayrshire ploughman who rose from humble beginnings to become one of the world’s best-known poets. 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, Robert Burns Birthplace Museum offers you the best opportunity to discover the complex and passionate man behind the icon.
