Does it cost to visit the gardens, gift shop etc? Or just the museum? My dad and boyfriend and big museum fans and we will be bringing our dog along but this looks like an excellent place for a little walk and a nice morning out.
Hi the only two parts of the site which require entry tickets are the museum and the cottage, dogs are welcome in both the monument and museum gardens on a lead. The museum garden has outside tables and chairs so you can enjoy coffee or a meal outside with your dogs, we also have water bowls so you can water your dogs. the Museum is situated in the main building at Murdoch's Loan but you can enter the shop and café at this site without going into the museum, unfortunately dogs are not allowed in the building but mentioned before there is the opportunity for them to join you in the gardens. hope this helps and we look forward to welcoming you all soon!
Thank you to everyone who contributed information for this query. Just wanted to clarify that NTS/ NT members get in free to the Museum & Cottage, someone has suggested that as a member of Historic Scotland you would get free admission, unfortunately Historic Environment Scotland is a different organisation and your membership of them would not qualify for free entry to National Trust properties.
Hi I see your questions have been answered in full by someone at the attraction. The gardens are beautiful also with a lot of history, i.e. the bridge and don't forget the grave yard where Burn's father is buried.
This is a lovely place to visit and dogs are welcome. There is a charge for the Museum and the cottage which is so interesting. The garden is beautiful and outside seating is available so you can have a snack or a meal outside - weather permitting. A really lovely and informative place to visit with many nice walks nearby.
I'm almost certain that you can bring along your dog to the gardens, as my friend took her elderly parents out for an outing with her dog (but think you may have to pop their leads on), their is also a sitting area outside if you fancy a bite to eat or have a refreshment etc - the food is really nice. Have a lovely time, it's a gorgeous place to visit and have a saunter around!
If you are a member of the national trust it's free entrance to the museum not sure about Burns cottage
There is a lovely walk nearby along the river Doon too
As far as I know,you only have to pay if you enter the museum & the cottage.
Just the museum
There is an entrance fee to both the cottage and museum but well worth it however if you join historic Scotland you get in for free well worth it and so is the visit to both the gardens and the part dedicated to burns poems is well worth a walk round
