Robert Burns Birthplace Museum

Simpson and Brown Architects

The Museum opened to the public in 2010. It is arranged around a 500 sqm exhibition gallery displaying many of the 5,000 artefacts in the Museum's collection. The new building also accommodates a cafe opening onto the beautiful mature gardens and an attractive and welcoming education room. The new museum plays a central part in the masterplan developed to link together and enhance the experience of the different sites in Alloway relating to the poet's life and legacy and to weave together more closely the threads telling the story of his life, his work and his heritage.
