The Robert Burns Birthplace Museum
A SPECIAL CELEBRATION OF AN INTERNATIONALLY LOVED SCOTTISH WRITER
The National Trust for Scotland charity was first approached to take the lead in delivering a multi-million pound Burns project in 2004. The initiative involves creating the new world class Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Alloway, carrying out a major re-interpretation of the cottage where Burns was born, delivering exciting new education facilities and enhancing the Burns Monument, Brig o’Doon and Auld Kirk.
The Trust’s Burns programme will be the largest, most ambitious project the charity has ever undertaken.
Burns is a key Scottish cultural icon and it is fitting that as the nation prepares to celebrate the 250th anniversary of his birth in 2009 that work will be underway on the creation of a new museum which will preserve the Burns legacy for future generations to come.
