Discover the real stories and artefacts of Scotland's greatest poet

Treat yourself for a 'wee' visit to the home of Scotland's favourite son, and explore the birthplace of a national treasure at the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum. Housed inside a quaint cottage in the charming hamlet of Alloway, it's here that one of Western culture's most influential figures was born and spent his childhood. * The museum contains thousands of authentic artefacts, personal belongings, and handwritten manuscripts. Presented in imaginative exhibition spaces, the museum gives visitors a window into Burns' world of creative inspiration. * Writer of iconic songs and poems like “Auld Lang Syne” and “Tam o' Shanter”, 'Rabbie' Burns is regarded as one of the greatest poets in history. Writing in a mix of English and Scots Gaelic, Burns is revered as Scotland's most treasured bard, but his timeless rhymes reached far beyond Scotland's highlands and glens.
