Robert Burns Centre

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. Test your powers of observation with a gallery investigation, discover Dumfries and Galloway’s Burns connections and browse around the shop.
