  • Small free Museum, extremely accurate, with eccentric staff. The Museum contains documents and writings of leading Scottish writers. For those who are passionate definitely is a museum not to be missed for those less concerned is however a chance to know.

  • Probably one of the most beautiful buildings in Edinburgh. Just off the Royal Mile, it's easy to find, with a wealth of information and history to be learned
  • What a delightful pleasure to visit the museum on Saturday afternoon and discover the Sangstream Scots Folk choir singing Burns songs! Their singing was exceptional. What with the Turner exhibition at the National Gallery, it made our visit to Edinburgh truly memorable.
  • Interesting little museum located in a historic home. Free to enter, so don't hesitate to stop by.
  • Quite a twee museum with a nice collection of Burns memorabilia. Space itself seems hardly changed since the 19th century and is a nice change from the bustling tourist crowds.
  • Excellent attraction if you are interested in literary history. Great way to spend a few hours on a rainy day
