Trip Planner: Europe / UK / Scotland / Ayrshire / South Ayrshire / Ayr / Robert Burns Birthplace Museum
Learn about Scotland's most famous bard at Robert Burns Birthplace Museum. The museum holds the world's most important Burns collection, containing more than 5,500 manuscripts, books, personal artifacts, correspondence, and artwork relating to Burns. Visit the cottage that was the birthplace of Scotland's favorite son. The two-roomed clay and thatch cottage, built in 1759, gives you a true sense of life in 18th-century Scotland. The restaurant and cafe feature traditional Scottish food. The museum is wheelchair accessible, but there's a bit of a walk between the outdoor exhibits.
