About Burns House Museum
Whether you are a first-time visitor to Mauchline or are returning to this historic town, the Burns House Museum is definitely worth a visit.
The museum is situated in the cobbled back streets of Mauchline where Robert Burns lived and worked between 1784 and 1788, years widely regarded as being his most creative and productive period. This was the time that Burns established himself as a poet, leading to the publication of the famous "Kilmarnock Edition”.
Burns and his wife Jean Armour spent some time living in the building that is now the museum and it features a recreation of the room they lodged in. Full of rare collections, original objects and documents relating to Burns’ time, the museum also brings the Burns story up to date.Read Less
