Happy Burns night to everyone who would like the celibate the life and works of this great Scottish poet and Artists.

The following images are from a visit I made last year to his birthplace Museum located in the town of Ayr, Alloway, Scotland

Once again Happy Burns night !!!

Birthplace Museum

Robert Burns Birthplace Museum offers a truly unique encounter with Scotland’s favourite son.

The museum comprises the famous Burns Cottage where the poet was born, the historic landmarks where he set his greatest work, the elegant monument and gardens created in his honour and a modern museum housing the world’s most important collection of his life and works.

The images below I feel show the life that this young poet lived and include the small rooms that he grew up in with his brother and sisters ( Analella, Gilbert and Agnes Burn), the display of the bed they shared and their bed clothes, I felt was just brilliant.
