A significant milestone in the new Robert Burns Birthplace Museum project was reached earlier this month with the final piece of the build of the new museum (completion of the exterior) taking place via a topping out ceremony. Focus is now turning to the interior of the museum which will house one of one of the world’s most important Burns collections.

The £21million project, which is the largest, most ambitious project the charity has ever undertaken, will be split into four sections – ‘Identity’, ‘Inspiration’, ‘Fame’ and ‘Creative Works’ – which will address every aspect of Burns’ life, loves and work.
The first shots of the interior of the National Trust for Scotland’s new Robert Burns Birthplace Museum have been revealed in a podcast. The podcast will give viewers a glimpse inside the new museum and explains the conservation charity’s vision for the layout of the state of the art exhibition which will bring the life and work of Robert Burns to life for visitors of all ages.

The Burns National Heritage Park – including the Tam O’Shanter Experience, Burns Cottage, Burns Monument, Statue House, Kirk Alloway and Brig O’ Doon – is still open to the public while the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum is being created.

The new museum is due to open in Autumn 2010, in Alloway, Ayrshire.
