Situated in the village of Alloway, the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, a National Trust for Scotland property, offers a unique encounter with the bard. The museum comprises the famous Burns 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.
The versatile venue is divided across two sites – the purpose-built museum on one site and Burns Cottage and Pavilion nearby.
Located in the new museum building, at the heart of a £21m development, the Museum Café is available for exclusive evening events, from drinks receptions to dinners and Burns Suppers. During the spring and summer months, guests can spill out on to the beautiful landscaped gardens which are dotted with sculptures.
Burns Cottage, where the bard first came into the world more than 250 years ago and lived until the age of seven, is available for parties of up to 20, with guests able to enjoy a dram while soaking up its unique history.
