Robert Burns House


It was in this simple sandstone house in a quiet Dumfries street that Robert Burns, Scotland’s national poet, spent the last years of his life. He died here in 1796 at the age of just thirty seven. The house shows us how the poet and his family lived in the late eighteenth century and is now a place of pilgrimage for Burns enthusiasts from around the world. The sales area has books, gifts and keepsakes, all with a Burns connection.

Robert Burns House is temporarily closed, it is not currently possible to reopen for public safety reasons. However, access can be arranged by appointment. Please call Dumfries Museum on 01387 253374 or email to make an appointment.

Accessibility: Four steps lead from the cobbled street to the door of Robert Burns House. Two rooms can be viewed on the ground floor. Visitors climb a narrow stair to four more rooms on the first floor. The closest public toilets, including disabled access toilets, are in the nearby Loreburn Shopping Centre. A virtual tour of Robert Burns House is available on request at the Robert Burns Centre.
