Nice way to while away an hour or so, not a huge amount to learn but some interesting snippets. If you are a big Burns fan you will probably love it! Fab little tea room and park and nice walks to other attractions

It IS an experience. Well worth it. There happened to be a market on when we visited - loafs of fabulous local things we'd never heard of, despite living in Ayrshire! As a Geordie, I'd not had much exposure to Burns before relocating to Ayrshire. The centre helped bring it all to life, and I'm now a convert. Burns is still very much relevant today.

This is a must-go-to-place. It gives a real insight into the life and work of Robert Burns. He is the most loved poet of Scotland and it is easy to why. Brilliant place and thank you for making it possible.
