The Robert Burns Birthplace Museum is an ideal family destination. The displays within the main museum exhibition and Burns cottage include plenty of hands-on and interactive exhibits and various installations around the museum site are bound to delight young and old visitors alike. It's not just Robert Burns for kids, parents will be just as fascinated.
Kid's meals are always on offer in the restaurant, which includes a play corner, and there is an outdoor play area in the main museum gardens. All of the shops deliberately stock plenty of affordable pocket money items as well as children's books by some of Scotland's best children's writers.
On the Poet's Path walking trail keep an eye out for the amazing statue of a 2 metre high mouse!
