Very informative museum detailing Burns short life, a scale map of the town in Burns' days, and a few bits of memorabilia associated to Burns. Nicely located on the riverbank.

This centre was well laid out, the information was clear and their was a very interesting model of Dumfries at the time Robert Burns lived there. He did so much it's hard to believe he was only 37 when he died.
