Award winning Visitor Centre telling story of connections between Robert Burns and the town of Dumfries.

Situated in the town’s eighteenth century watermill on the west bank of the River Nith, the Robert Burns Centre tells the story of Robert Burns’ last years spent in the bustling streets and lively atmosphere of Dumfries in the late eighteenth century.

The exhibition is illuminated by many original manuscripts and belongings of the poet. There is a fascinating scale model of Dumfries in the 1790s and a haunting audio-visual presentation.

There are museum trails and fun activities, and visitor information to help you explore Dumfries and Galloway’s Burns connections. Browse around the shop with its wide selection of Scottish books, gifts and keepsakes, local craft work and foods. Lively exhibition programme of work by local artists and award winning restaurant.

In the evenings the centre is the regional film theatre for Dumfries and Galloway, showing the best in contemporary cinema in its luxurious theatre.
