Visitors can follow the poet's life and legacy, from his birth in the humble cottage built by his father, to the phenomenal output of songs and music that captured the world's imagination.

Immersive sound and light installations, films and interactive media and contemporary art commissions help to interpret and enhance the historic landscape and collection, which includes original manuiscripts of Burns' most famous works, such as Auld Lang Syne and Tam o' Shanter.
