Robert Burns Birthplace Museum has been deliberately designed to be easy to get around.

The two main sites (Burns Cottage and the Museum) are connected by the Poet’s Path, a 500 metre-long pedestrian walkway. On busier days, our volunteers run a regular electric shuttle along it.

Both the Museum and Burns Cottage (in the Education Pavilion building next door) have accessible toilets.

There’s disabled parking and level access at Burns Cottage and the Museum. The Poet’s Path is also level, while the Burns Monument Gardens can be accessed by wheelchair users.

Guide dogs are welcome throughout the site. Exhibition, education areas and meeting rooms are fitted with induction loops. Wheelchairs are available for any visitors who need them.

The more historic parts of the site, such as the Auld Kirk, Brig o’ Doon and Burns Monument, have uneven steps and surfaces. Staff will be delighted to help all visitors get around and get the most from their visit.
